Speaking about appearing on the show, Steve said: 'I loved reading to my kids when they were younger so it was a great pleasure to read a Bedtime Story for CBeebies, about a pair of mischievous eyebrows causing havoc – something I'm sure we can all relate to.' 

The father-of-two – who shares daughter Elisabeth Anne, 21, and son Johnny, 18, with his wife Nancy Carell – answered some fan questions on social media before his appearance.

One viewer revealed a 'sweet' misunderstanding with their daughter who thought they were looking for Duggee and the Squirrels in a forest, instead of trying to spot actual squirrels, and so they ended up on a 30-minute hunt for CBBC characters.
