Scottish actor Ewan McGregor is the latest star to read a CBeebies Bedtime Story and says it is an “honour and pleasure” to do so.

McGregor will read ‘Everybody’s Welcome’, written by Patricia Hegarty and illustrated by Greg Abbott, on Friday 17th August.

The story is about a little mouse that dreams of building a home where he can welcome those in need, no matter who they are or where they come from.

He learns that if they work as a team, they can build a house to keep everyone safe and warm, where they all feel they belong.

McGregor said: “It’s such an honour and pleasure to join an incredible list of actors to read a CBeebies Bedtime Story to children all over the UK. I had a great time filming and I hope everyone enjoys watching it.”

The actor is the latest name to be added to a stellar list of celebrities to have read a CBeebies Bedtime Story, including Tom Hardy, Sir Elton John, George Ezra, Suranne Jones, Dolly Parton, US actor Chris Evans, Eddie Redmayne, Jessica Ennis-Hill, Guy Garvey, David Tennant, Damian Lewis and Tim Peake.
