Mark Ronson has said that his fans keep throwing Curly Wurly chocolate bars at him when he performs on stage.

The record producer and DJ said that he was a big fan of the Cadbury treat when he lived in the UK as a child, but that it can sometimes be “painful” if one hits him when he is performing live.

He told Channel 4’s Sunday Brunch: “People used to ask me, because I grew up in England and moved to the States, they’d be like, ‘What’s the thing you miss about England?’.

You throw a Curly Wurly at a festival, it picks up some speed and you get hit in he head, it's like, it might be a gesture of love but it can be painful

“I’d say, ‘Well, I loved Curly Wurlys’. And I think some more passionate fans started throwing them.

“You know, you throw a Curly Wurly at a festival, it picks up some speed and you get hit in he head, it’s like, it might be a gesture of love but it can be painful.”

Ronson, 43, was offered a chocolate cake with a Curly Wurly-inspired design on the top by the programme’s presenters Simon Rimmer and Tim Lovejoy.

Ronson joked: “That would hurt if someone threw that at you on stage, for sure.”

The music star, who earlier this year won an Oscar for co-writing A Star Is Born song Shallow, has just released his new album Late Night Feelings.
