And it should come as no surprise.
Tom Hardy previously read bedtime stories in the early evening slot on the children’s programme on New Year's Eve and Valentine's Day.
The Taboo actor is returning to CBeebies for Mother's Day because, let’s be perfectly honest here, it’s more grown-up women than children who’ll be tuning in to watch it.
Hardy will be reading a brand new bedtime tale, There's A Bear On My Chair by Ross Collins, on the holiday.
Here were some of Twitter’s reactions to the announcement:

@CBeebiesHQ Great.... That's me putting the kids to bed early because she's got something "important" to watch ðŸ˜œ

@CBeebiesHQ this is totally sexist - when do the Dad's get some Bedtime Story Babe? I suggest Thandie Newton reading The Gruffalo.

@CBeebiesHQ Mother's Day! You're making it hard for us husbands to compete with our own gifts, grr! ðŸ˜€
