But the mother-of-one will be reading another story –  about a superhero in search of a sidekick – in Juniper Jupiter by Lizzy Stewart.

Dixon follows in the footsteps of Sir Elton John, Dolly Parton, David Hasselhoff, Tom Hardy and Jodie Whittaker in signing up for the star-studded TV slot.

The singer and co-presenter of The Greatest Dancer said of her five-year-old: “I’ve always made time with my daughter, Azura, for a bedtime story.

“There’s something magical about lying in the dark and listening to stories.”

Dixon’s CBeebies Bedtime Stories slot airs at 6.50pm on May 24.
