Gary Barlow to read bedtime story

Take That frontman Gary Barlow is guaranteed a younger audience at his next gig - reading a bedtime story on Christmas Eve.

The singer, recently reunited with Robbie Williams for a new Take That album and tour, will be reading a story about Elmer the patchwork elephant on CBeebies.

He is just one of several stars, including Star Trek star Sir Patrick Stewart, taking turns to read stories on the children's channel over the festive season.

Its controller Kay Benbow said: "I am delighted that we have two such wonderful readers for our special Christmas stories on CBeebies.

"Both Gary and Sir Patrick took time out of their busy schedules and we are grateful to them for giving our viewers such lovely festive treats."
