Regé-Jean Page is to read a CBeebies Bedtime Story

Fans were quick to react over the exciting news, with one writing: "Bedtime stories just got interesting." Another joked: "Wow CBeebies have got the line up this week! Is it still acceptable to watch in your 20s?" A third post read: "Ooh goodness what a Mother's Day gift ."

On Tuesday 16 March, actress Felicity Jones will read the story, The Huffalots, by Eve Coy. Felicity tells the audience: "Now, I'll tell you a secret. Lots of us grown-ups can feel ourselves turning into Huffalots as the day goes on. But luckily we've got our Lovealots to cheer us up……remember, a Huffalot can always become a Lovelot, with a little bit of help."

Thursday sees the return of Tom Hardy reading a brand new story titled Somebody Swallowed Stanley by Sarah Roberts and Hannah Peck, a thought-provoking tale about the eventful journey made by Stanley, who is no ordinary jellyfish.

At the end of the story, Tom surmises: "If one person can save a turtle, just imagine what we can all do when we work together. We can overcome diseases, invent amazing new things and make the world a better place by helping animals, and helping each other."

CBeebies Bedtime Stories is on daily at 6.50pm.
