Stop everything! Tom Hardy is back on CBeebies with a special Valentine's Day message

Genius broadcasting decision. We applaud you, CBeebies.

So he read the CBeebies Bedtime Story on New Year’s Eve and almost broke the internet. Now we will be spending Valentine's Day with him too.

Last week we brought you the breaking news that Tom will be reading another Bedtime story for us tomorrow on the Hallmarkiest of all the Hallmark holidays.

Yes, that's right, Tom Hardy is spending his Valentine's Day reading YOU a bedtime story.

Tom's New Year's Eve appearance sent mams (and a lot of dads) everywhere into meltdown when he read You Must Bring a Hat by Simon Philip and Kate Hindley, while his adorable dog Woodstock slept on his lap.

This time around the Taboo actor will read The Cloudspotter by Tom McLaughlin, the story of Franklin, a little boy who spends his time all by himself spotting clouds and adventures in the sky so he doesn't feel so alone. When Scruffy Dog comes along, things begin to change for Franklin; how can he concentrate on cloudspotting when Scruffy is such a distraction?

Tom will be joined once again by his own gorgeous dog Woody to tell the story, which celebrates the power of the imagination and the importance of friendship. And he had this message for me, I mean, the kids:

The Revenant actor is just one of a long list of celebrities who have presented a CBeebies Bedtime Story, including Emilia Fox, David Tennant, Warwick Davis, James McAvoy and David Hasselhoff.

In the teaser clip posted on Facebook today - Tom urges the kids to get "tucked up" and "ready for bed" and, he says, he will see us very, VERY soon.

Now, we need to be alone for our sweet, sweet dreams.
