Andy Serkis will begin the marathon read on Friday morning

Andy Serkis who played the corrupted character, originally known as Smeagol, in The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit films will give a continuous live reading of The Hobbit online, to raise money for charity.

He will read the novel from start to end and will only take a break to go to the toilet.

BBC News reports money raised from his expected 12-hour performance will be split between NHS Charities Together and Best Beginnings in the UK.
