Ed Sheeran is the latest star to entertain the nation’s children with a CBeebies Bedtime Story.

Swapping his guitar for a book, Ed will be reading I Talk Like a River by Jordan Scott and Sydney Smith. It’s the moving story of a boy with a stutter, whose father helps him by explaining that the flow of his words is like a river. The singer experienced a stutter himself as a young boy.

Ed says: “Growing up, I had a stutter like the boy in I Talk Like a River, so I’m delighted to be reading this story for CBeebies Bedtime Stories, especially as I’m a new dad myself. I hope the story helps inspire and support other children who stutter.”

The star follows in the footsteps of other musicians who have appeared on CBeebies Bedtime Stories including Dave Grohl, Dolly Parton, Bjorn Ulvaeus, Rag’n’Bone Man, Sir Elton John, George Ezra, Alesha Dixon, Robbie Williams, Mark Ronson and Will Young, as well as actors Tom Hardy, Felicity Jones, Regé-Jean Page, Tom Hiddleston, Orlando Bloom and Joanna Page.

CBeebies Bedtime Stories in on each weekday at 6.50pm on the CBeebies channel and is also available on BBC iPlayer. Ed Sheeran’s CBeebies Bedtime Story will air on Friday 5 November.
