Fresh from headlining the world famous Coachella Festival, Harry is the latest celebrity to read a special story to youngsters on TV. Airing on the evening of Monday, May 23, Harry will be seen in his pyjamas reading ‘In Every House, on Every Street, written by Jess Hitchman and illustrated by Lili la Baleine.
The story is a heartwarming celebration of homes and the different families that live in them. Introducing the segment, Harry says: “Tonight’s bedtime story is about a house full of love and laughter.”
After the news was announced on Monday morning, scores of mums took to social media, excited at the prospect of seeing the former One Direction singer on the children’s channel.
A number of parents commented “My good god” or “Oh My God”. One wrote: “Might have to watch this, you know for the kids.”
Another mum said: “Finally, a bedtime story I’m interested in.” And one fan commented: “I physically cannot cope with this information. My favourite person on my favourite childhood show on my birthday.”
