CBeebies has just revealed their latest storyteller who will be helping us put the kids to sleep on Christmas Eve.

The Venom actor Tom Hardy has returned to Bedtime Stories by popular demand.

The Peaky Blinders star will be reading his story on Friday, December 24 at the show's regular time of 18.50pm.

CBeebies for Grown Ups made the announcement on Twitter paired with a Santa emoji: "Merry Christmas!

"NEW Tom Hardy #CBeebiesBedtimeStories"

The children's programme went on to treat us to not just one Christmas story read by Hardy.

The 44-year-old will be reading An Odd Dog Christmas by the author Rob Biddulph on Christmas Eve.

We're then getting a second gift with Hardy reading a second story - the Christmas Pine by Julia Donaldson and Victoria Sandoey.

This is not the first time that Hardy has read one of Biddulph's books either. 

Alongside a clip of the actor's reading of Biddulph's original story "Odd Dog Out", the author celebrated his return on Twitter.

He wrote on the platform: "EXCITING NEWS! My newest book, An Odd Dog Christmas, is going to be this year’s Christmas Eve Bedtime Story on CBeebies! What an honour! And it will be read by none other than… TOM HARDY! I know! Amazing, right?"

Biddulph went on to say: "He also read my original Odd Dog Out story a few years ago, and that has been one of their most viewed episodes ever (here’s a clip).

"So to say I’m thrilled is an understatement. Double Tom! Mark it in your diaries, team…"

CBeebies Bedtime Story airs every weekday evening at 18:50pm on CBeebies.
