Kids’ show presenter glams up for the ASTRAS
actress and TV presenter Natalie Bassingthwaighte (pictured) will present an award at this month’s ASTRA Awards. New mum Bassingthwaighte reads stories for the popular childrens’ program CBeebies Story Time. ‘‘I love nothing more than reading to my daughter Harper, seeing her face come to life page after page,’’ she says. ‘‘This is why I couldn’t say no to Cbeebies Story Time, to give kids a chance to develop a love of stories. That being said I am very much looking forward to getting glammed up for a grown up night at the ASTRAs.’’ The ASTRA Awards recognise best and brightest pay TV stars and shows. It will be staged at Sydney Theatre, Walsh Bay on Thursday, June 21.
Mondays to Fridays, 7.15pm, Cbeebies.
