The wait is over - and the man who saw off Eminem last year is set to mambo...

BOB THE BUILDER’s follow up to his chart-topping smash ‘CAN WE FIX IT?’ will be a cover of LOU BEGA’s ‘MAMBO No 5 (A LITTLE BIT OF…)’.

According to tabloid reports in the UK today (July 6), the cartoon pop star will change some of the words in the cover. The original, which went to Number One in September 1999 and was Bega’s only hit, is currently being used as theme music for Channel 4’s cricket coverage.

Bob is also lining up a Christmas single, which is reported to be a duet with Elton John on ‘Crocodile Rock’, which was a Number Five hit in 1972.
