Ronan Keating is the singing voice of Postman Pat in the much-loved animated character’s upcoming debut film.

In the film, Postman Pat decides to make his own bid for stardom as he auditions for a reality TV talent show called You’re The One.

37-year-old Keating does the real singing for Greendale’s favourite postie for the audition that he hopes will impress fictitious impresario and music mogul Simon Cowbell.

The upcoming 3-D animated Postman Pat: The Movie has Stephen Mangan voicing the spoken words of Postman Pat, while David Tennant, Jim Broadbent and Rupert Grint also feature in the film.
