Pint-sized singer Lulu has recorded a children's bedtime story to help listeners drift off to sleep in their children's beds on Christmas day.
The 63-year-old's voice will read One Christmas Night by Christina M. Butler and Tina MacNaughton - the story of a hedgehog who forgets to do his Christmas shopping list before the big day. The programme will be aired on BBC's CBeebies, when the star is expected to swap her trademark gravelly sound for a soft and soothing voice fit for bedtime.
Lulu will be joining fellow stars to have read bedtime stories for Christmas, including X Factor judge and singer Gary Barlow and actor David Tennant.
When asked about the project, the singer seemed as excited as a child on Christmas Eve and told contactmusic.com (published December 14th): "Christmas stories are so magical, with Christmas the most magical time of all and this brought out the child, the actress and the storyteller in me. I loved it."
