Tom Hardy is dedicating his final instalment of Bedtime Stories (cue heartbreak) to his dog Woody who died earlier this year.
A lot of people are looking forward to seeing Tom because of his reading skills, obviously, which conveniently airs on National Dog Day on August 26th – and he will be reading ‘Fleabag’, by Helen Stephens.
In a heartbreaking message on the Tom Hardy Dot Org Tumblr page, Tom revealed Woody had died after a ‘very hard and short’ six month battle with polymyositis, an inflammatory muscle disorder.

Hardy’s next and final appearance on the show was filmed before Woody’s death back in June, and sees the adorable pooch appearing by Tom’s side, as he has in previous Bedtime Stories.
Let’s have a little look at what people have been saying about Tom’s Bedtime Stories shall we?
