He tells the story of Princess Pearl, Sir Gadabout and their trusty ‘air ambulance’, Zog the dragon as they fly around and tend a sunburnt mermaid, a distressed unicorn and a sneezy lion.

The award-winning actor first appeared on CBeebies back on New Year’s Eve 2016 and since then, his CBeebies Bedtime Stories have been streamed an incredible two million times on BBC iPlayer.

This is the first of six new stories Tom Hardy has recorded for CBeebies.

They were recorded in his garden and Tom was accompanied by his adorable French bulldog, Blue.

CBeebies Bedtime Story is on each weekday at 6.50pm on CBeebies and BBC iPlayer.

As previously reported by Mediashotz, actor Hardy has had a long-term association with CBeebies and reading stories for children.
