Just days after he admitted he was "struggling" to cope with a newborn baby and an ill father, it has now been revealed that former Strictly Come Dancing star James Jordan has still found time to do something sweet. The professional dancer, who welcomed a little girl with wife Ola in February, retweeted a fan's message, which revealed he spent some time with stroke victims in hospital following his own dad's stroke earlier this month. "How is your father James? And I want publicly thank you for visiting all the stroke victims in Medway Hospital two weeks ago," the comment read. "It really brought them some cheer. My aunty was one of them."

Fans of the star rushed to heap praise on his act of kindness, with one saying: "Well done James. You have a reputation as being a bit abrasive. But more importantly you have good heart." Another simply wrote: "So lovely."
