Drift off with the soothing voice of Emilia Fox for Virgin Radio Chilled’s Storytime debut. 

The actress, best known for roles in Silent Witness, Dorian Grey and Pride and Prejudice, is the first big name for Virgin Radio Chilled’s new series, which will see a star sit down to read passages from beloved novels as we wind down to the end of the day. 

Storytime’s first book is The Other Boleyn Girl, written by Phillippa Gregory, which is loosely based on the life of the 16th Century aristocrat, Mary Boleyn - the sister of Anne Boleyn. 

The historical novel is told from Mary’s perspective, and focused on the annulment of Henry VIII’s marriage to Catherine of Aragon and his desperate need for a male heir. 

The Other Boleyn Girl was adapted for the small screen in 2003 in a made-for-TV-movie starring Jodhi May and Philip Glenister. Scarlett Johansson then starred as Mary in the Justin Chadwick-directed Hollywood flick of the same name in 2008. 

Emilia will read The Other Boleyn Girl every Sunday through to Thursday from 10pm-11pm for the next few weeks, so get cosy with Virgin Radio Chilled as we bring you the perfect combination of music to kick back to alongside some relaxed reading time. 

The Other Boleyn Girl by Philippa Gregory, read by Emilia Fox airs on Virgin Radio Chilled Sunday-Thursday at 10pm. The Other Boleyn Girl is out now and available in paperback, ebook and audiobook.
