Mother's Day just got a bit more interesting. Cue Regé-Jean Page appearing on CBeebies Bedtime Stories - a treat for kids and parents. 

The Bridgerton star will be wowing viewers by reading Rain Before Rainbows by Smriti Halls and David Litchfield about a girl and her fox friend 'who travel together from a place of loss and despair, through uncertain times, towards the hope of colour, light and life'.

Fighting to find a way out of the darkness? Sounds familiar. 

The story starts at 6.50pm on Sunday 14th March - Mother's Day - so tune in then for reading with Regé.

Tom Hardy is also making a welcome return on Thursday with Somebody Swallowed Stanley by Sarah Roberts and Hannah Peck about a jellyfish-turned-plastic-bag teaching the importance of trying to make a difference no matter how small.

The actor has said about the important lesson within the story: "If one person can save a turtle, just imagine what we can all do when we work together.

"We can overcome diseases, invent amazing new things and make the world a better place by helping animals, and helping each other."

Other famous faces joining CBeebies to raise money for Comic Relief are singer Rag'n'Bone Man on Monday 15th March and actress Felicity Jones on Tuesday 16th March.
