WATCH: X Factor stars kick off Evelina’s tenth birthday celebrations

X Factor stars Only The Young helped kick off Evelina London Children’s Hospital’s tenth birthday celebrations in style last month when they attended a party for teenage patients.

The reality TV show finalists stunned brave kids with a surprise visit and special performance at the hospital on August 21.

The group performed three songs for patients, including an exclusive acoustic version of their new single ‘I Do’.

Band member Betsy-Blue English said: “It’s so nice to be back at Evelina London. We’re so honoured and thankful to be here and meet so many amazing kids.”

Fifteen-year-old patient Rebecca Cavanagh said the party was “amazing.”

She said: “I’ve been a patient here for more than ten years and I can remember when the hospital moved from Guy’s into its new home on the St Thomas’ site. It’s gone so fast! We’ve had so much fun organising the party. Evelina London is an amazing place full of amazing staff. They are my favourite thing about the hospital. They’re so committed to their patients.”
