Sick children at George Eliot hospital were treated to a special visit by two Harry Potter heroes.

Instead of bringing grapes for the poorly youngsters, actors James and Oliver Phelps, who play the Weasley twins in the smash-hit films, shared their on-set stories.

The stars, whose characters are no strangers to broken bones from the the rough and tumble of Quidditch, spent an hour chatting to the 18 children on Caterina ward.

They signed well-thumbed copies of the Harry Potter books. The duo also helped to switch on the Christmas lights in Nuneaton on Friday night.
