JB Gill to read Cbeebies bedtime story

by Lauren Abbott

Kent farmer and former popstar JB Gill is in charge of tonight's Cbeebies bedtime story.

JB was once part of the four-piece pop group JLS.

They played to thousands across the world and topped the charts until they split in 2013.

Since then his life has taken a different route and he now has a smallholding near Westerham and is a presenter of popular Cbeebies programme Down on the Farm.

And on Monday evening (January 14) the former singer is in charge of settling down thousands of youngsters by taking a turn to read the popular Cbeebies bedtime story.

He isn't the first famous face with links to Kent to take a seat in the bedtime story studio. Last year Hollywood actor and former Kent student Orlando Bloom took on the role.

JB, a father-of-two small children, will be reading Families, Families, Families by Suzanne Lang in which a host of silly animals in dozens of combinations demonstrate all kinds of families in this warm celebration of family love.

The programme is on the Cbeebies channel at 6.50pm.
