BBC’s Cbeebies have really pushed the boat out with their latest line of celebrities who are reading bedtime stories for our little ones. Whoever came up with this idea, deserves a medal, a plaque and a parade. A few weeks ago it was all about Tom Hardy, which sent so many mums over the edge, 3x in fact, but whilst Tom maybe a good looking chap, he’s not my cup of tea. Which is why, when I heard none other than Chris Evans (the actor, definitely not the TV presenter) was going to join the line-up, I nearly passed out in shock. Beautiful Chris Evans (still most definitely the actor). The only guy who looks good as a human banana split (check that out if you haven’t seen it!).
So, lo and behold ladies, this evening, the 35-year-old actor will be reading ‘Even Superheroes Have Bad Days,’ to the millions of not fussed children and their over-excited mums. The book, Even Superheroes Have Bad Days, is a book by Shelly Becker and Eda Kaban which shows children how to cope when they feel overwhelmed. Whilst Emily may be too young to notice or give a crap, I’m really excited to see the actor’s first appearance on Cbeebies and to top it off, this is the first of more to come. Bonus!
Evans’ bedtime reading follows in the footsteps of Tom Hardy, David Hasselhoff, Damian Lewis, Sir Derek Jacobi, James McAvoy and former Doctor Who star David Tennant who have all lulled us to sleep with their dulcet tones. So, if you can’t watch it, make sure you record it because this is going to be good!
To watch Chris in action, head over to Cbeebies tonight at 6.50pm.
