The former Doctor Who star is set to lend his voice to one of the characters in the big-screen adaptation of the popular children's TV series, alongside Rupert Grint, Jim Broadbent and Stephen Mangan as Pat.

But he refuses to divulge further details about the movie at the premiere of his new film, The Pirates! In An Adventure With Scientists, saying: "Yes, I'm working with Rupert Grint. I've already told you more than I'm allowed!"

The 40-year-old did, however, reveal that the postman would have a feline companion in Jess, adding: "Oh yes, it's Postman Pat. Are you mental?"

David - who voices the young Charles Darwin in Peter Lord's new Aardman animated pirate film alongside Hugh Grant, Martin Freeman and Brendan Gleeson - insisted that these roles are not a return to his childhood.

"It's just the way it has worked out, I think. It's just what I have been asked to do," the dad-of-two said.

"But I will definitely not turn down the chance to be in The Pirates! In An Adventure With Scientists or Postman Pat. That would be crazy."

The Pirates! In An Adventure With Scientists opens in cinemas on March 28.
