Will Mellor, who showcased his dance moves in the hit BBC show last year and has also appeared in Line of Duty and Broadchurch, visited the unit at Walsall Manor Hospital on Friday.

The Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps star took a tour of the new parents rooms on the unit.

The rooms have recently undergone a transformation thanks to Walsall Healthcare NHS Trust charity Well Wishers' and Libby Mae's Little Angels, with donations from Annette's Pram Shop and Marks & Spencer, Wednesbury.
