Parents are in for a right treat this Christmas with Jason Momoa joining Tom Hardy in reading CBeebies' Bedtime Story this Christmas.
Set to appear on the show this Friday (22 December), the Aquaman star will be reading the children’s book Tiddler, by writer Julia Donaldson and illustrator Axel Scheffler, the story of a little fish with a big imagination.
Wearing black silk striped pyjamas and a crocheted purple cardigan, the actor will start by saying: "I’m here to read you a Bedtime Story from my underwater kingdom. The sea is full of stories.
"I could tell you many tales of my amazing adventures in the sea, but I’m not the only one. Every creature in the ocean, from the mightiest whale to the tiniest tiddler, has their own tale to tell. And this book is about a very little fish who has some very big stories of his own."
Speaking about reading for the series, Momoa said: "One of my favourite books that I read to my children as they were growing up was The Gruffalo, so I am very happy to read another amazing story by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler for a CBeebies Bedtime Story."
Other episodes in the lead-up to Christmas Day will star Peaky Blinders actor Tom Hardy, singer Talia Mar, Supergrass frontman Gaz Coombes, and fitness instructor Mr Motivator.
The Christmas week kicks off today (18 December) with Hardy reading Tisha And The Blossom by Wendy Meddour, illustrated by Daniel Egneus, with his French bulldog, Blue, by his side.
It encourages readers to slow down and take notice of the world around them through the story of a young girl named Tisha who is always told to 'Hurry up'.
After reading the story, Hardy says: "Tisha has taught me a great lesson – just slow down.
"The world can be a very, very busy place. Your mind can be full of sounds and pictures and just busyness.
"So it is important to take your time to slow down and go at your own speed."
CBeebies Bedtime Story airs daily at 6.50pm on CBeebies and BBC iPlayer.
Momoa's Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom is releasing in cinemas on 21 December
