Singer Ed Sheeran is the latest musican to swap singing for the sofa and read a Cbeebies Bedtime Story.
The musician will entertain the nation's children with a story about stuttering, something he experienced himself as a young boy.
Ed will be reading I Talk Like a River by Jordan Scott and Sydney Smith and is the tale of a boy with a stutter whose father helps him by explaining that the flow of his words is like a river.
Ed said: “Growing up, I had a stutter like the boy in I Talk Like a River, so I’m delighted to be reading this story for CBeebies Bedtime Stories, especially as I’m a new dad myself. I hope the story helps inspire and support other children who stutter.”
The star follows in the footsteps of other musicians who have appeared on Cbeebies Bedtime Stories including Dave Grohl, Dolly Parton, Sir Elton John, Alesha Dixon, Robbie Williams and Will Young as well as actors such as Tom Hardy and Kent's very own Orlando Bloom.
CBeebies Bedtime Stories in on each weekday at 6.50pm on the CBeebies channel and is also available on BBC iPlayer. Ed Sheeran’s CBeebies Bedtime Story will air on Friday, November 5.
