Harry Styles: Singer latest star to read CBeebies bedtime story.

Harry Styles is set to make his first CBeebies Bedtime Stories appearance wearing blue and brown spotted pyjamas.

The former One Direction star, 28, will read Jess Hitchman’s In Every House, On Every Street, which is illustrated by Lili la Baleine, on Monday evening.

The story is described as a “heart-warming celebration of homes and the different families that live in them”.

In pictures released ahead of the broadcast, Styles sits cross-legged in a yellow armchair wearing colourful pyjamas, a chunky necklace and a collection of rings on his fingers.

Styles’ appearance on the children’s show comes as the singer released his third solo album, Harry’s House, to generally positive reviews.

His bedtime story will air on Monday May 23 and he will introduce the story saying: “Tonight’s bedtime story is about a house full of love and laughter.”

Styles will follow in the footsteps of Hollywood star Chris Evans, best known for playing Captain America; Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl; and British actor Tom Hiddleston, who have all appeared on CBeebies Bedtime Stories.

The programme is on each weekday at 6.50pm on the CBeebies channel and BBC iPlayer.
