Singer and TV presenter Myleene Klass donned her scrubs and praised the work of Belfast nurses as she filmed a new programme in Northern Ireland.

The former Hear'say star tweeted pictures of her with some of the "amazing nurses" from ward 4A of the Royal Victoria Hospital.

Some of the patients got a bit of a surprise on Wednesday when the 37-year-old served up their dinner and helped staff with their ward rounds as she filmed the new show.

The programme will focus on the work of nurses and medics who have come from abroad to work in the NHS, and the scenes shot in Northern Ireland focus on the Filipino nurses working for the Belfast Trust.

Myleene's mother, Magdalena, is originally from the Philippines, and she worked as a nurse in England for many years.

Posting a picture with some of the nurses from the hospital's fractures ward, the celebrity wrote: "Actual squad goals. Thanks to the amazing nurses I worked with today, those around the UK and my own mama."

The star also posted a picture of herself with some medical equipment in a hospital corridor and called herself "nurse Myleene".

She also added a selfie with the comment: "Where does it hurt? Working on the wards today."

In another photo, she posed in a high-visibility jacket and hard hat as she visited the site of the new £50m radiotherapy unit at Altnagelvin Hospital in Londonderry.

The new state-of the-art ward, which is expected to cater for more than 500,000 people, is scheduled to open its doors sometime later this year.

The programme, which will also feature Myleene's interviews with some of Belfast's nurses, is expected to air in the summer.
