It’s bedtime with Tom Hiddleston later this month as the Loki star reads for CBeebies
Actor Tom Hiddleston is to entertain the nation’s children with a CBeebies Bedtime Story when he tells the tale of a much-loved and very different type of superhero.
The star makes his CBeebies debut on Friday 25 June when he reads the fun-filled adventure Supertato by Sue Hendra and Paul Linnet about a superhero potato and a supervillain pea. Tom opens the story by saying:
“Tonight’s bedtime story is all about a supervillain. This guy is really naughty, very cheeky… and bright green. But never fear, because where there’s trouble, a superhero is sure to follow.”
We can imagine which would be played by Tom!
The BBC announcement also reveals Cat Deeley is reading Love Makes A Family by Sophie Beer all about the love shared by family members. Deeley’s read is lined up for Father’s Day.
The actors join the line-up of top names who have already lent their reading talents to CBeebies this year, as we reported in March. So far this year, there have been new stories from Regé-Jean Page, Tom Hardy, Felicity Jones, Rag‘n’Bone Man, Oti Mabuse, Chris O’Dowd and Tom Ellis.
