Ronan Keating to sing in "Postman Pat" movie

December 5th, 2013

Ronan Keating will provide Postman Pat's singing voice in a new movie.

The Boyzone singer has joined 'Postman Pat: The Movie', an upcoming film adaptation of the popular children's cartoon, and he admits he was a childhood fan.

Keating said: ''It's been a true honour to help bring Postman Pat's singing voice to life. I grew up watching Pat and the great characters in Greendale so I can't wait to take my kids along to see them all on the big screen.''

The 36-year-old 'Life is a Rollercoaster' singer will join 'Green Wing' actor Stephen Mangan, Jim Broadbent, Rupert Grint - who rose to fame as Ron Weasley in the 'Harry Potter' films - and David Tennant to bring the world of Postman Pat to life on the big screen.

The Irish star will not only sing all of Pat's songs, but will also have a cameo appearance in the film which sees everyone's favourite postman come face-to-face with the temptations of money, status and a shiny new suit when he enters a national TV talent show that threatens to tear him away from his family and friends.

'Postman Pat: The Movie' was co-written by award-winning scribe Kim Fuller of 'Spice World' and 'High Heels & Low Lifes' fame and Annika Bluhm, the head writer and producer of the 'Postman Pat' TV series, and is directed by Mike Disa.

'Postman Pat: The Movie' will be released in UK cinemas on May 23, 2014.
