Harry Styles has added many strings to his bow since those early XFactor days, from being part of one of the world’s most popular boy bands to launching a successful solo career and even becoming an actor.
And now the “Watermelon Sugar” singer is using his soothing Mancunian accent to help the nation’s children get to sleep by appearing on CBeebies Bedtime Stories.
Following in the footsteps of the Duchess of Cambridge, Tom Hardy, Ryan Reynolds and Dolly Parton, Harry is the latest famous face to settle down and read one of his favorite books during the BBC slot, which has become a family favorite in recent years.
For his appearance, the former One Direction star will read In Every House, On Every Streetwritten by Jess Hitchman and illustrated by Lili la Baleine (£14.40, Amazon.co.uk).
