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...
Some fans were just a tad excited about Tom's appearance after the last two episodes:

Some parents weren't going to hide the fact that their children weren't actually present:

I have nieces and nephews - does it matter if they are not actually with me?

While some used alternative (and completely valid) parenting methods to get their fix:

Plenty of mums thought that Tom's presence on CBeebies was the perfect way to end Mother's Day:
