A class at a primary school in Sudbury was left in shock after Stephen Fry sent them a video message.

Pupils from Redwood Class at St Gregory Primary wrote to the famous broadcaster, known for formerly presenting BBC quiz show QI, with questions about Humanism after they watched a video he narrated about it.

And he replied with a video answering all of their questions.

In a tweet, the school posted a short video of Fry's response, adding: "What an incredibly kind and wonderful thing to do."

In the video, Fry says: "Worth remembering that St Gregory, who was a great saint, his name Gregory is the same Greg as in congregation.

"It actually means a sort of shepherd who congregates their sheep."

"So I hope you are gregarious Gregorians.

"Lots of love."
