Orlando Bloom announced as next CBeebies Bedtime Story readerÂ
Orlando Bloom has become the latest star to read a bedtime story on the BBC to help children '˜light up'.
The Hollywood star of Lord Of The Rings and Pirates Of The Caribbean will appear on CBeebies with a Bedtime Story.
He follows famous names such as Tom Hardy, Sir Elton John and Dolly Parton in reading a children's tale on the BBC.
Bloom, 41, will be reading from We Are Together, written and illustrated by Britta Teckentrup, on November 9.
He said: '˜Through my travels as a Unicef Goodwill Ambassador, I've met children in countries all over the world, and witnessed first-hand how storytelling between adults and young children helps cement their bond.
'˜Children light up when being taken on imaginary adventures through storytelling, and it helps their creativity grow. It was great to be a part of CBeebies Bedtime Stories.'Â
The bedtime reading to be aired on November 9 is the first of two stories recorded with the actor.
Ewan McGregor, actor Chris Evans, George Ezra, Suranne Jones, Dame Jessica Ennis-Hill and Eddie Redmayne have all taken part in a CBeebies Bedtime Story.
The programme airs daily at 6.50pm.
