X-Men star James McAvoy donated £50,000 to help save the life of a brave 16-year-old girl with cancer.

Kelly Turner, who was given just two years to live in 2015, hopes to fly to America for pioneering surgery to reduce the size of the rare tumours.

Her family are trying to raise $700,000 (£558k) needed for the immunisation to fly her to New York for immunotherapy treatment.

When James heard of her plight, he visited her at the Royal Marsden Hospital in Kent on Tuesday.

The Hollywood A-lister posed for a selfie while the pair chatted at her bedside.

He later donated £50,000 to her JustGiving page.

He also wrote on her page: “Great to meet you the other day Kelly.

“I hope this helps you achieve your goal sooner rather than later.

“Good luck luv James.”
