There’s nothing that British children love more than Tom Hardy, apparently. The Venom actor is about to become a staple of British children’s television, with an upcoming stint on the BBC pre-school channel CBeebies’ Bedtime Stories program, where celebrities read bedtime stories to kids. Hardy had appeared on the program back in 2016 and quickly became the most popular celebrity storyteller on the series. Because of the children, for sure.
Deadline reports that BBC children’s channel CBeebies has enlisted Tom Hardy to appear on six Bedtime Stories episodes, reading six different bedtime stories to their pre-school aged viewers (and their parents, who are likely the real ones tuning in to see the actor ).
A new Tom Hardy Bedtime Stories episode series will start airing on the BBC this month, with the actor reading stories for children with his dog.
