Tom Hiddleston has signed up to read a superhero-themed bedtime story on the BBC's channel for preschoolers, CBeebies.

According to Deadline, the Loki actor will read the story Supertato by Sue Hendra and Paul Linnet. Fittingly enough given Hiddleston's Marvel connections, it follows a battle of wills between a superhero potato and a supervillain pea.

He begins the story by saying: "Tonight's bedtime story is all about a supervillain. This guy is really naughty, very cheeky... and bright green. But never fear, because where there's trouble, a superhero is sure to follow."

Hiddleston's bedtime story will air on CBeebies on June 25. If you don't have access to the U.K. based channel, it shouldn't be too hard to find clips from Hiddleston's appearance on social media afterward.

He follows in the footsteps of famous faces including Tom Hardy, Tom Ellis, and Chris O'Dowd in reading a bedtime story on CBeebies. Bridgerton star Regé-Jean Page also joined the club earlier this year by reading the story Rain Before Rainbows on British Mothers' Day in March.

Hiddleston recently shared his views on whether his Marvel character Loki is more superhero or supervillain. His eagerly-anticipated Loki series premiered on Disney+ on June 9.
