CBeebies Bedtime Stories has always been extremely special to me. As a mother it signals the end of a long, full day with your children, snuggles on the sofa and a bit of breathing time. I'm so happy we've been given the opportunity to be on the other side and read to the nation's children, especially our own two boys, Robin and Rafe.- Rosie Ramsey

Chris and Rosie Ramsey are the latest stars to read a bedtime story for CBeebies. The parenting duo will be adding their own comedic spin to children's book 'When Jelly Had A Wobble', written by Michelle Robinson and illustrated by Tom Knight.

The book tells the story of Jelly who worries that he doesn't fit in with his foodie friends. Jelly soon learns that what makes us different should be celebrated. The tale looks at friendships and being true to ourselves.

Rosie says: "CBeebies Bedtime Stories has always been extremely special to me. As a mother it signals the end of a long, full day with your children, snuggles on the sofa and a bit of breathing time. I'm so happy we've been given the opportunity to be on the other side and read to the nation's children, especially our own two boys, Robin and Rafe."

Chris says: "I read bedtime stories to both of our sons at home all the time and I have for years. So I thought it was about time I went professional. I'm delighted CBeebies have given Rosie and I the opportunity to become storytellers and entertain the nation's kids."

The couple follow in the footsteps of other stars who have appeared on CBeebies Bedtime Stories, including Ed Sheeran, Dave Grohl, Dolly Parton, Bjorn Ulvaeus and Romesh Ranganathan.

CBeebies Bedtime Stories is on each weekday at 6.50pm on the CBeebies channel and BBC iPlayer. Chris and Rosie's story will air on Friday 19 November.
