Joe Wicks is set to send pulses racing across the nation by reading the “Bedtime Story” on CBeebies this Valentine’s Day.
The shaggy-haired fitness coach will settle down with his children Indie and Marley to read Love Monster and the Perfect Present by Rachel Bright (HarperCollins Children’s Books), on 14th February at 6.50 p.m.
Wicks, bestselling author of books like Lean in 15 (Bluebird), follows in the footsteps of former Valentine’s Day readers Tom Hardy and Luke Evans.
He said: "One of my favourite things in the world is sitting down before bed and reading a new story with Indie. I love seeing her eyes light up and learn every day. I’m amazed by how much babies absorb language through books. I’m so excited to show Indie, Marley and my nephews my Bedtime Stories. I had so much fun reading them.”
"Love Monster" is also a TV series on CBeebies and Bright has just signed a deal with HarperCollins for a brand new story, set for release in April 2021.
