Tottenham striker Harry Kane to read CBeebies Bedtime Story

The England captain, 29, will read The Lion Inside written by Rachel Bright and illustrated by Jim Field.

It follows a shy little mouse who sets out on a journey to find his roar and is a book which Kane chose himself as it is one he has read to his own children.

Speaking on the book Kane said: “One of my favourite things to do is sit down with my children before bedtime and read them a book. I enjoy this quality time with them.

This year’s theme is “make mental health and wellbeing for all a global priority” which aligns with Kane’s chosen book as it touches on themes of “friendship, confidence and self-esteem”, the BBC said.

Kane becomes the latest well-known figure to have read a CBeebies Bedtime Story, alongside the likes of the Duchess of Cambridge, Tom Hardy, Harry Styles, Steve Carell and Dave Grohl.

Strictly Come Dancing winner Rose Ayling-Ellis became the first person to sign her story in British Sign Language earlier in the year.
