Bridgerton star Regé-Jean Page is giving mums, dads and non mums and dads a special treat this weekend - by reading us all a bedtime story.

The Duke of Hastings will make his CBeebies debut just in time for Mother’s Day on Sunday (14 March).

He will read a story called Rain Before Rainbows by Smriti Halls and David Litchfield, which is about a girl and her companion fox who travel together from a place of loss and despair, through uncertain times, towards the hope of colour, light and life.

They learn that, in the midst of rain, rainbows can be hard to see but, with courage and the help of good friends, there is always a way out of darkness. Blub.

And as if that wasn’t enough, Tom Hardy is returning to read aloud a brand new story just days later in a real star-studded week for the channel. Other stars reading a bedtime story include Oscar nominee Felicity Jones, reading The Huffalots by Eve Coy, and singer Rag’n’Bone Man reading My Dad Used to be So Cool by Keith Negley.


On Thursday (14 March) Tom Hardy will be getting the nation ready for bed reading a brand new story called Somebody Swallowed Stanley by Sarah Roberts and Hannah Peck.

It’s about a jellyfish which is swallowed by a series of unsuspecting animals only for the reader to discover it is, in fact, a plastic bag. A child comes to the rescue and repurposes Stanley so he is no longer a hazard to wildlife demonstrating how we can all make a difference no matter how small.

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

There’s a mystery reader on Friday (19 March) in support of Comic Relief, which is yet to be revealed. But we’re sure it’ll be a good one.
