Loki himself is going to read children of the UK a superhero story just before bedtime.
Tom Hiddleston has signed up to present a CBeebies Bedtime Story, which premieres on BBC pre-school channel CBeebies on June 25. The British actor will read Sue Hendra and Paul Linnet’s Supertato, which tells the story of a superhero potato and a supervillain pea.
Hiddleston opens the story by saying: “Tonight’s bedtime story is all about a supervillain. This guy is really naughty, very cheeky… and bright green. But never fear, because where there’s trouble, a superhero is sure to follow.”
He joins an illustrious group of former CBeebies story readers, including Regé-Jean Page, Tom Hardy, Chris O’Dowd, and Tom Ellis.
