    I've sent off my application but now I'm panicking as I didn't put any hobbies down due to not thinking they were that important. My personal statement is mostly academic with a bit of work experience thrown in and activities that I do relating to the course but no ''actual'' hobbies. Should I be worried?

    shouldn't be, they recommend 80% academics and 20% stuff about you, pretty sure you can sub hobbies and things you get upto with the work exp.

    i wouldnt worry about it, as long as you've showed that you're passionate about your subject you should be fine.

    If your personal statement is strong as it is, then don't worry that you didn't mention any hobbies. You should have only included them if they were relevant to save room for more important things.
