Dave Grohl is the latest star to sign up to read a Bedtime Story for CBeebies.

The Foo Fighters’ frontman will be reading from a book based on the lyrics of Beatles’ song, Octopus’s Garden.

Written by Ringo Starr and with pictures by Ben Cort, the book follows five children on a journey through the Octopus's garden.

“As a proud father of three, I’ve always enjoyed reading stories to my children. It was a pleasure to read these stories for CBeebies,” he said.

This is the first of 2 stories he’s recorded for the pre-school channel and it will air on October 8th.
