Bridgerton's Regé-Jean Page is making his CBeebies Bedtime Stories debut on Mother's Day - and excuse us while we scream in excitement.

Regé - who plays Simon, Duke of Hastings in the steamy Netflix show - will sit down to read Rain Before Rainbows by Smriti Halls and David Litchfield.

Regé is treating all mums this Mother's Day (

BBC explain the book is about a girl and her companion fox who travel together from a place of loss and despair, through uncertain times, towards the hope of colour, light and life.

They learn that, in the midst of rain, rainbows can be hard to see but, with courage and the help of good friends, there is always a way out of darkness.

Regé will settle down to read the story at 6.50pm on Mother's Day, so make sure you set 10 alarms - and yes, it's more than acceptable to tune in even if you don't have kids.

If that wasn't the best news you've heard all week, there's more.

Bedtime Stories regular Tom Hardy will also be making a return on Thursday, reading a brand new story Somebody Swallowed Stanley by Sarah Roberts and Hannah Peck.

The story follows a journey made by Stanley, who is no ordinary jellyfish. As he drifts through the ocean waves, he is swallowed by a series of unsuspecting animals. As the story goes on, it turns out that Stanley is, in fact, a plastic bag.

A child comes to the rescue and repurposes Stanley so he is no longer a hazard to wildlife, with the story demonstrating how we can all make a difference no matter how small.

"If one person can save a turtle, just imagine what we can all do when we work together. We can overcome diseases, invent amazing new things and make the world a better place by helping animals, and helping each other," says Tom.

Felicity Jones will also be reading a story (

Meanwhile, on Monday 15th March, singer Rag'n'Bone Man will read My Dad Used to be So Cool by Keith Negley and the following day, on Tuesday 16 March, actress Felicity Jones will read The Huffalots by Eve Coy.

What. A. Line up.
