Loki star Tom Hiddleston is to make his CBeebies Bedtime Stories debut next week, reading Supertato by Sue Hendra and Paul Linnet.

The Marvel favourite will tell the story of a superhero potato and a supervillain pea on Friday 25 June at 6:50pm on CBeebies.

"Tonight's bedtime story is all about a supervillain," he begins. "This guy is really naughty, very cheeky... and bright green. But never fear, because where there's trouble, a superhero is sure to follow."

Hiddleston is following in the footsteps of Tom Hardy, Felicity Jones, Oti Mabuse, Chris O'Dowd, Regé-Jean Page and Dolly Parton by becoming a CBeebies storyteller.

This Sunday, Father's Day, Cat Deeley will read Love Makes a Family by Sophie Beer.
