CBeebies, Orlando Bloom

Orlando Bloom, star of film, TV and stage, will be helping you all snuggle down for sleepy time with a nice CBeebies Bedtime Story!

Remember how social media went into meltdown when tough guy movie star Tom Hardy showed his softer side, reading a CBeebies Bedtime Story? Get ready for another famous storyteller, this time in the shape of Orlando Bloom!

Yes, the star of The Lord Of The Rings trilogy and current boyfriend of pop star Katy Perry will be reading We Are Together, written and illustrated by Britta Teckentrup, which celebrates the importance of having special friends and family in your life.

Orlando can be seen on CBeebies on Friday 9th November.

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," says Orlando who was on stage in London's West End this summer in the play Killer Joe. "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."

This is the first of two stories Orlando has recorded for CBeebies.

The ever-growing list of celebrities to have read a CBeebies Bedtime Story so far includes Ewan McGregor, Tom Hardy, Sir Elton John, US actor Chris Evans, George Ezra, Suranne Jones, Dolly Parton, Jessica Ennis-Hill and Eddie Redmayne.
