CBeebies Bedtime Stories airs its first ever signed episode

Comedian, actor and writer Rob Delaney reads a CBeebies Bedtime Story, which he also signs in Makaton - a first for the much loved show.


Rob reads and signs Ten In The Bed by Penny Dale, all about ten cuddly friends trying to go to bed. Young viewers will love to join in with the bouncy, counting bedtime rhyme when the story airs on Children in Need day, Friday 16 November on CBeebies.


Rob says: "My family loves to read together so naturally we're fans of CBeebies Bedtime Stories. I am beyond honoured to be the first person to read and sign a book using the Makaton language. Our family learned Makaton to be able to communicate with our son Henry, who couldn't speak due to a tracheotomy. We're sad Henry isn't here to see it but we're happy other families will get to enjoy a story told in Makaton."


CBeebies Bedtime Stories is on daily at 6.50pm.
