Joe Swash carried a 95-year-old woman into hospital when she couldn't find a wheelchair.

The former 'EastEnders' actor helped some struggling family members carry the woman into the building, and he has been praised by her granddaughter on social media.

Taking to Twitter, Suz revealed the 40-year-old star was quick to help in a tough situation.

She wrote: "Yesterday my 95 year old nan had a hospital app, in a very busy hospital my 2 aunties that took her couldn't find a wheelchair so had to half carry her in, out of all the people there a man ran straight to them to help @realjoeswash thank you so much (sic)"

Joe responded: "No problem! Your nan looks amazing for 95 hope she is ok. (sic)"

Suz replied: "Thank you, she keeps telling everyone that you said she only looks 70! You made an old ladies day!!!! (sic)"

Fans have heaped praise on Joe - who recently tied the knot with 'Loose Women' star Stacey Solomon - for his kind gesture.

One Twitter user wrote: "Ah this really doesn't surprise me. Joe and Stacey come across as such lovely people, not just for the cameras. Both really kind hearted. I hope your nan is ok x (sic)

Another added: "Joe. you give hope for humanity. Your act of kindness was a real gift to someone who was struggling.

"100% amazing geezer bless you and your family with all the joy in the world. (sic)

And a third person tweeted: "This is so kind, what a legend."

Joe and Stacey got married in an intimate wedding ceremony at their Pickle Cottage home in Essex on July 24.

The nuptials were attended by famous faces including Stacey's 'Loose Women' co-star Linda Robson and former 'TOWIE' regular Ricky Rayment, while the reception featured a set by James Argent's The Arg Band as well as a DJ playing garage tracks.

The couple's children are also believed to have been in attendance on the stars' big day.

Stacey and Joe are parents to two children together, Rose, nine months, and three-year-old Rex.

She also has Leighton, 10, with her ex Aaron Barham, and Zachery, 14, with Dean Cox, while former soap star Joe is dad to 15-year-old Harry with his former fiancée Emma Sophocleous.

Stacey previously revealed they would be having a blessing at home but they will legally register their marriage at a later date.
