FORMER Big Brother, Little Brother presenter Emma Willis got out the brushes to help some unemployed youngsters bring some extra colour to Newham General Hospital.
The Channel 4 star was on hand last week to pitch in with 13 Prince’s Trust young people from East London as they redecorated the children’s ward of the hospital in Glen Road, Plaistow.
Emma said: “It was absolutely fantastic meeting the young people today.

During the scheme the 13 youngsters renovated rooms in the ward and painted an outdoor area.
