Tom Hiddleston to delight mums as he reads CBeebies bedtime story

Tom Hiddleston is used to taking on the good guys as supervillain and anti-hero Loki in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

But he is set to swap his villainous get up for the CBeebies studio as it has been announced he will read a superhero-themed bedtime story for toddlers later this month as part of CBeebies’ Bedtime Story segment.

The Hollywood actor is just one of a number of stars to read bedtime stories to kids as part of the special show, which has seen the likes of Tom Hardy, Rege-Jean Page, Felicity Jones, Rag ‘n’ Bone Man and now Tom sit in the famous chair.

Tom will read the book Supertato, penned by Sue Hendra and Paul Linnet – which follows the story of a superhero potato and a supervillain pea – when he makes his Bedtime Story debut on Friday June 25.

Tom 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.”

The story is all about the love shared between different members of the family.

Tom is currently starring in Disney+ series Loki, whilst he has also played the anti-hero in a string of Marvel movies including Thor: Ragnarok, Thor: The Dark World and Avengers: Endgame.

The actor admitted landing the role in 2011 “changed his life”.

“I feel a huge responsibility in honouring the affection in which Loki is held by the audience,” he explained recently.

“I absolutely love playing him. He is such a fun, complex character.”

But he admits the hardest part of being in the Marvel series is keeping the show’s plot a secret.

“It’s best just to swallow the news and the truth and never speak of it until it’s time. The Marvel movies mean so much to so many people and the characters mean so much to so many people,” he said.

“I think they enjoy being surprised.”

He also starred as an ex-soldier turned undercover agent in The Night Manager, alongside Hugh Laurie and Olivia Colman.
