CBeebies certainly knows their audience for their Bedtime Story segment!
Their past guest presenters have included gorgeous (and incredibly lovely) celebrities like Tom Hardy, Chris Evans and not forgetting, Bridgerton star Regé-Jean Page, much to the excitement of mummies (and some daddies) across the UK – so imagine their excitement when the presenter for the 16th of July 2021 was announced…
That’s right… On the 16th of July, none other than RYAN REYNOLDS will be reading the CBeebies Bedtime Story!
You can watch yesterdays announcement below, featuring the hunk himself – we’re a big fan of the glasses. He told viewers;
“Well hello, I’m Ryan and I can’t be with you in the CBeebies House at the moment but I really want to read you a Bedtime Story, so here I am all the way from the other side of the world in Canada.
Now, do you ever feel a bit wild? Sometimes when it’s dark and cold outside, and the day is drawing to a close, I know I do!
Sometimes even the wildest creatures need to settle down with the people they love and get ready for sleep.”
What story will Ryan be reading on the 16th of July?
The daddy-of-three will be reading ‘Where the Wild Things Are’, by the marvellous author Maurice Sendak, via video chat from his abode in Canada. The critically acclaimed book was first published in 1963 and it tells the tale of a boy named Max who dresses up as a wolf, and then travels to a spooky and mysterious island inhabited by monsters, known as the Wild Things. It’s a brilliant read for children, and we think that Ryan will ‘do the voices’ better than anyone!
So, put Friday the 16th of July, 6:50pm in your diary everyone!
