Single this Valentine’s Day? Tom Hardy’s here to save the day by reading you a bedtime story
Who needs a hot date when you have everything you could possibly need on CBeebies this Valentine’s Day?
Due to the success of his last appearance on the “children’s” channel, Tom Hardy will be returning to CBeebies for some more bedtime storytelling this February.
The actor will be making his welcome comeback on Valentine’s Day this year, which surely cannot be a coincidence…
The BBC announced the news on Twitter, posting a picture of Mr. Hardy with the caption: “Yep. He’s back. More #TomHardy!”

We might be used to seeing The Revenant star playing much more serious, badass characters but we’re pretty sure we could get used to this kind of Tom as well. His CBeebies debut as a storyteller went down a storm when it aired on New Year’s Day at the beginning of this year; so much so that he has been invited back already!
At the beginning of this month, Hardy settled down on the sofa with his pooch to read us You Must Bring a Hat by Simon Philip and Kate Hindley, and this time round he will be reading The Cloudspotter by Tom McLaughlin.
Meanwhile, the actor has received critical acclaim for his new BBC period drama Taboo. The eight-part series sees Tom portray the character of James Delaney, who returns to London from Africa in the wake of his father’s death and finds new conspiracy and betrayal surrounding him.
Speaking to Digital Spy about the show, Tom said: “It came about from doing [BBC One’s 2007 miniseries] Oliver Twist and playing Bill Sykes.
“To be bluntly honest, I wanted to play Bill Sykes, Sherlock Holmes, Hannibal Lecter, Heathcliff, Marlow… just every classical character in one.”
Taboo continues Saturday at 9:15pm on BBC One.
