George Ezra is reading a CBeebies Bedtime Story next month

This is the best thing to ever happen. Ever.
Some things are just meant to happen. We might not know it until they do, but once the stars have aligned, they feel just right.

Prepare yourself for one of those moments. George Ezra is set to read a CBeebies Bedtime Story.

Yep. We know.

Following in the footsteps of the likes of Sir Elton John, Dolly Parton and Tom Hardy, he’ll be reading ‘Here Comes The Sun’ by Karl Newson, with illustrations by Migy Blanco. It’s about an owl on a “magical, shooting-star-filled journey”, and will air on Friday, 1st June at 6:50pm.

Look, here’s proof.

“It was an absolute honour and a pleasure to be invited to read a CBeebies Bedtime Story and follow in the comfy-slippered footsteps of all the greats that have gone before me,” George says.

“I’m too young to have watched Jackanory as a kid and arguably too old to watch CBeebies now, but I’ve not let that stop me.

“All my friends with kids are mad for the show, so now, in their eyes, I’ve finally made it. This is right up there with Glastonbury, the Live Lounge and the Graham Norton Show.”
