Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom have brought some Christmas cheer to poorly children in hospital during the festive period.

The famous duo, who are reportedly dating, dressed up as Santa and Mrs Claus as they visited youngsters at the Children's Hospital of Los Angeles.

Singer Perry, 32, and British actor Bloom, 39, handed out presents and sang Christmas carols with the children, before surprising one patient on his birthday.

The hospital said: "Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom came decked out as Santa and Mrs Claus to surprise patients at Children's Hospital Los Angeles and spread some holiday cheer.

"They joined families for a holiday sing-along, handed out gifts, took photos with each family, and asked everyone what the holidays meant to them.

"They also visited several patients who were too sick to leave their rooms, including a mega fan who got a surprise happy birthday duet from Katy and Orlando."

Perry was recently honoured by Unicef with the Audrey Hepburn Humanitarian Award for her charitable efforts with the organisation.
