Great British Bake Off winner Nadiya Hussain visited the children’s ward at Watford Hospital to help launch a new hospital service.

The Starlight Foundation’s new hospital service, called Captain Starlight, aims to improve children’s stay in hospital through entertainment, arts and crafts and play.

Nadiya said: “As a child I spent a lot of time in hospital because my brother and sister were unwell.

“I’ve experienced first-hand how boring, and at times scary, growing up in a hospital can be.

“The in-hospital services that Starlight provides are game changers for sick children and their families.”
