Rege's appearance, at 6.50pm, is part of a week-long special of stories with singer Rag 'n' Bone Man and Felicity Jones amongst the other big names set to read the nation's children their story before bed.

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.”
