Legendary kids TV show Jackanory is getting an adult makeover in new series Crackanory.

Narrators including Jack Dee, Sarah Solemani, Rebecca Front, Hugh Dennis, Richard Hammond, Stephen Mangan, Sally Phillips, Jessica Hynes and Harry Enfield will take it in turns to occupy the Crackanory chair and give us a master-class in storytelling.

In tonight's first episode Jack Dee will read 'Bitter Tweet', about Twitter addict Darren who sends a flippantly rude message to pop superstar Joaquin Blieber. The tweet goes global within 15 minutes and Darren becomes the most hated man in the world.

Sally Phillips will then read 'What Peebee Did Next'. Peebee is a much-loved clockwork toymaker who suddenly dies. His will states he should be stuffed and returned to his family, barking pre-recorded messages to them twenty-four hours a day!

Crackanory, Dave, 10pm
