Can he tuck us in, too?
After receiving huge demand after his 2016 appearance from CBeebies fans (aka, mums everywhere), CBeebies has announced that Tom Hardy will be returning to the children’s channel for a very special quarantine edition of Bedtime Stories.
Announcing the very exciting news on their Instagram, Cbeebies has confirmed that the Venom star will not only be reading one bedtime story, but six – keeping the kids (aka us) entertained for an entire week.
Each Bedtime Story will, of course, be different, with the heartthrob kicking off the week with a reading of Hug Me by Simone Ciraolo on April 27. Accompanied by his French Bulldog (for extra cuteness, obv), Tom will also read stories such as Under the Same Sky by Robert Vescio and Nicky Johnston, Don’t Worry, Little Crab by Chris Haughton, The Problem with Problems by Rachel Rooney and Zehra Hicks and childhood classic There’s a Tiger in the Garden by Lizzy Stewart.
Cheryl Taylor, Head of Content at BBC Children’s, said: “It goes without saying how thrilled we are to have Tom reading more stories for us.
“It’s during challenging times like this that the BBC serves its purpose to entertain the whole of the UK and these new stories are guaranteed to do just that with their themes of long distance friendship, sharing problems and true courage in overcoming seemingly impossible challenges.”
The ‘Tom Hardy week’ will start on April 27, with the week concluding on May 1. The date for his sixth reading is currently unconfirmed, however, we’re happy to save that one for a rainy day.
CBeebies Bedtime Stories in on each weekday at 6.50pm on the CBeebies channel and is also available on BBC iPlayer.
