Tom Hardy kicks off CBeebies Bedtime Stories

Tom Hardy is reading tonight a selection of new stories to Cbeebies’ Bedtime Stories.

The actor – who has been named the show’s most popular guest – first appeared on the programme back in 2016 and since then his Bedtime Stories have been requested an incredible one million times on BBC iPlayer.

‘Hello. I’m Tom,’ he begins in the teaser. ‘Sometimes, on a day like this, I feel strong and happy. But on other days, I just need somebody to give me a hug.  ‘Tonight’s bedtime story is all about a little cactus called Felipe, who just wants a hug too.’

Tom wanted to play a part in keeping the children of the UK entertained at this challenging time and will read a new story each day starting on Monday 27 April to Friday 1 May.
