Tom Hardy reading bedtime stories is the gift that keeps on giving – at least where mums are concerned – as the actor took to our screens again tonight to read a special Mother's Day Bedtime Story on CBeebies.

We've already seen the Taboo star read us a story on New Year's Eve and Valentine's Day, and after the Beeb had Tom record a total of five stories, we're not surprised that they chose to air one as a special gift to all the hard-working mums out there.

Settling down with his dog to read There's A Bear on My Chair, Tom melted hearts all over again.

And viewers at home were pretty vocal about the special treat...

You can watch Tom read you a Bedtime Story on iPlayer now.

Bedtime Stories airs on CBeebies every day at 6.50pm.
