Star Trek and Shakespearean actor Sr Patrick Stewart is the latest celebrity to take to the internet to give us something to brighten our day while we stay at home.
With fitness guru Joe Wicks bringing homeschooled children daily PE sessions and TV presenter and writer David Walliams bringing them storytime, the veteran actor is bringing something a little more high brow.
Sir Patrick, who has played the iconic Jean-Luc Picard in Star Trek and Professor X in X-Men, has joined fellow thespian Judi Dench in posting for our entertainment, but his is in keeping with his many Shakespearean roles.
He is posting a Shakespeare Sonnet a day until #ASonnetADay until the coronavirus outbreak is over.
Kicking his culture readings off he said: "When I was a child in the 1940s, my mother would cut up slices of fruit for me (there wasn't much) and as she put it in front of me she would say, "An apple a day keeps the doctor away." How about, “A sonnet a day keeps the doctor away”? So...here we go: Sonnet 1."
He said of his posting yesterday: "This is one of my favourites."
There are 154 sonnets - will he get through them all?
