Orlando Bloom to read CBeebies bedtime story
Orlando Bloom is the latest celebrity to read a bedtime story for CBeebies.
The actor will be seen reading We Are Together, by Britta Teckentrup, on the channel on 9 November.
"Children light up when being taken on imaginary adventures through storytelling, and it helps their creativity grow," the actor said.
"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."
Bloom recently appeared in the West End in the stage adaptation of Killer Joe.
Unlike his scheduled CBeebies appearance, however, that production was certainly not one aimed at children - as he got naked on stage in his role as a contract killer and misogynist.
He made headlines over the summer when, during one performance of the show, he told off an audience member for using their iPad.
