Robbie Williams' Cartoon Phobia

Singer ROBBIE WILLIAMS was an unlikely choice to voice a character in new animated movie SPRUNG! THE MAGIC ROUNDABOUT - because he was terrified of cartoons as a child.

Williams joins a star-studded cast, including SIR IAN McKELLEN, JIM BROADBENT, RAY WINSTONE and KYLIE MINOGUE in the remake of the 1960s children's favourite.

But he confesses he used to hide behind his sofa when the show came on television when he was young.

Williams explains, "It's weird - I became really scared of animation when I was a kid.

"SCOOBY DOO, THE MAGIC ROUNDABOUT, BAGPUSS and MR BENN used to scare me for some reason - I used to hide behind the sofa when anything came on that was animated."
