Global superstar Harry Styles is set to read an exclusive bedtime story to audiences on CBeebies next week.
Fresh from headlining the world-famous Coachella Music Festival across the pond, and shortly before he heads out on a sell-out stadium tour following the release of his upcoming studio album, Harry’s House, later this month, Cheshire-born singer and actor Harry Styles has been announced by the BBC today as the latest reader to settle the nation’s children with a CBeebies Bedtime Story.
According to a statement released by the BBC, Harry will “don his pyjamas” to read the ‘In Every House, on Every Street’, which is written by Jess Hitchman and illustrated by Lili la Baleine.
The story is “a heartwarming celebration of homes and the different families that live in them”.
Although not much has been revealed about an appearance that’s is likely to have viewers of all ages tuning in, the BBC says Harry introduces the bedtime story as being about “a house full of love and laughter.”
Styles’ appearance makes him the latest in a long list of famous names to feature on the CBeebies series – which has previously seen the likes of Tom Hardy, Ed Sheeran, The Duchess of Cambridge, Tom Hiddleston, Ellie Goulding, Dave Grohl, Regé-Jean Page, and more all show their faces,
As part of Deaf Awareness Week 2022, Rose became the first celebrity to sign a CBeebies bedtime story in British Sign Language (BSL), and the story – titled Can Bears Ski? – warmed the hearts of audiences across the UK as it told the tale of a young bear and his dad on their journey into the discovery and management of deafness.
Chester Zoo calls for runners to take on new charity 10k to help ‘save endangered animals’
Chester Zoo is calling for thousands of runners to take on a charity 10k through the zoo’s grounds in a bid to help save one of its many endangered species.
The UK’s biggest charity zoo is looking for 2,500 runners of all abilities to sign up for its brand-new ‘Run for Nature‘ later this year – which begins inside the zoo’s 128-acre grounds, and sees participants race past the elephant, giant otter, and giraffe habitats, all before heading out and around the wider countryside estate.
As well as the 10k route, there’s also a special one-mile ‘zoom’ fun run around the zoo, which is perfect for energetic kids under 12.
All runners will get a medal when they cross the finish line, and there’ll even be some exciting prizes up for grabs for those who raise the most money.
Taking place on Sunday 24 September, all funds raised from the run will go towards the Chester Zoo’s ongoing and extremely-important efforts to find a vaccine for a deadly virus that threatens endangered elephant populations all across the world – which is known as Elephant Endotheliotropic Herpesvirus (EEHV).
Scientists at the zoo are currently in the middle of the world’s first vaccine pilot study to fight the virus, and hope that proceeds raised from the upcoming events can help “create a future where Asian elephants survive and thrive.”
“We’re so excited to be able to offer places for 2,500 fundraisers to run our first ever 10k Run for Nature later this year,” explained Hannah Wright, Fundraising Lead at Chester Zoo.
“As a charity, fundraising is at the core of this event, but we also hope that it’s a great fun event that the whole family can get involved in – whether running, supporting or sponsoring.
“All participants will be receive a sustainable medal and top fundraisers will have the opportunity to win a variety of prizes, which include annual memberships, animal experiences, and meal vouchers for our gastro pub, The Oakfield, as well as a selection of animal adoptions.”

Morrisons is giving hungry customers the chance to tuck into a hearty helping of fish and chips at half the price for just one day only today.
And it’s all to suitably celebrate National Fish and Chip Day.
A popular annual event in the British foodie calendar, National Fish and Chip Day falls on Friday 2 June this year, and to mark the special occasion, Morrisons has slashed the price of its usual chippy offering at hundreds of its in-store cafes nationwide.
The major supermarket has more than 400 cafes inside stores right across the UK, and the half-price food offer is believed to be available at all of them.
Adults can enjoy Fish, Chips and Peas for just £3.49, while the children‘s Mini Fish, Chips and Peas meal has also been reduced to £2.74.
Not a bad bargain at all, right?
The only catch is though, you’ll need to be signed-up to the supermarket‘s loyalty scheme and scan your Morrisons More card at the cafe checkout if you want to claim the half price offer.
Morrisons’ half-price fish and chips offer also comes after it relaunched its popular ‘Ask for Henry’ initiative towards the end of April after a successful run when it was first introduced amid the rising cost of living crisis in 2022.
‘Ask for Henry’ saw the retailer team up with Heinz for scheme that’s aimed at helping those struggling with their finances get themselves a free hot meal.
