UK recording star Ronan Keating will provide the singing voice of Postman Pat in his upcoming big screen debut, Postman Pat: The Movie.
Keating joins a voice cast featuring Stephen Mangan as Postman Pat as well as Jim Broadbent, Rupert Grint and David Tennant.
“It’s been a true honour to help bring Postman Pat’s singing voice to life," said Keating.
"I grew up watching Pat and all the great characters in Greendale so I can’t wait to take my kids along to see them all on the big screen.”
In addition to singing all of Postman Pat’s songs, Keating also has a cameo appearance in the film, appearing as a contestant who competes against Pat for a coveted prize.
Postman Pat: The Movie follows Pat as he comes face-to-face with the temptations of money, status and a shiny new suit when he enters a national TV talent show competition that threatens to tear him away from his hometown of Greendale and his family and friends.
Postman Pat: The Movie will be released in cinemas across the UK on May 23rd 2014.
