'Bat Out Of Hell' man set for new TV role

Meat Loaf to read story to drumming puppy
Meat Loaf is set to make a guest appearance on 'Bookaboo', a new children's TV show set to debut on CiTV in March.

The singer will read the storybook 'The Lamb Who Came To Dinner' to a cartoon drumming puppy that the series is named after who, according to programme makers, needs to hear "a story a day or he just can't play".

The Meat Loaf-featuring episode, which will be the first of 13 shows, will air on March 2.

According to the Press Association the singer said of his forthcoming reading, "You need to have fun with reading and, if it's scary, make them shiver under the covers. If it's friendly and happy, make them feel fuzzy and warm."

Other celebrities who have recorded guest appearances on 'Bookaboo' include Amanda Holden, Al Murray, Mel C, Alesha Dixon and Fern Britton.
