Orlando Bloom to read Cbeebies bedtime story
Orlando Bloom will settle amongst the soft toys and read his bedtime story on Cbeebies this Friday (November 9).
The Hollywood actor who was born and grew up in Kent, is turning the pages on We Are Together by Britta Teckentrup.
The story, which celebrates the importance of having special friends and family in your life, is one of two that the Canterbury actor and former St Edmund's School pupil has recorded for the television channel's 6.50pm slot.
Orlando says: “Through my travels as a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador I’ve met children in countries all over the world, and witnessed firsthand 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.”
Other famous names to have read stories on the channel include Tom Hardy, Sir Elton John and Dolly Parton.
