She was there to celebrate Pyjamarama, a fundraising campaign for children's reading charity, BookTrust. Pupils donated £1 to wear their PJs, celebrated a bedtime story read to them and got a book signed by the famous author.

She said: "I'm supporting BookTrust's Pyjamarama campaign because I'm hoping that today, families will ditch the tech, pay a pound to put on their PJs and rediscover the joy of a bedtime story."

Money raised will ensure more children and families get access to the life changing benefits of reading and books.
