Having proven himself as one of the coolest dads in the world time and time again, Dave Grohl is set to put his parenting skills to wider use for the UK this Friday!

The Foo Fighters frontman will be reading a Bedtime Story for CBeebies on October 8, joining a long list of famous stars who have done the same for the franchise – from Dolly Parton to Elton John.

"As a proud father of three, I’ve always enjoyed reading stories to my children," Dave says. "It was a pleasure to read these stories for CBeebies."

Dave will be reading a story based on the lyrics of The Beatles' Octopus’s Garden, written by Ringo Starr and with pictures by Ben Cort.

A synopsis of the book explains that the story "follows five children on a magical journey through the Octopus's garden. The playful Octopus takes them on a wondrous underwater adventure, riding on the backs of turtles, playing pirates in a sunken city and sheltering from a storm in the octopus's cave."

Yep, we'll be tuning in for that…

Dave’s new book The Storyteller: Tales Of Life And Music is due out on October 5 via Dey Street Books and Simon & Schuster.
