Tom Hanks helped U.S. chat show host Ellen Degeneres spread the holiday cheer on Wednesday (11Dec13), as he surprised the audience with presents worth more than $3,000 (£1,834) during the comedienne's annual 12 Days of Giveaways extravaganza. The Oscar winner assisted DeGeneres by giving every member of the audience gift cards to various stores, as well as a stay at a spa resort in Las Vegas.
