Mark Owen could be spreading Christmas cheer by playing an elf in a festive-themed film, according to reports.

The Take That star has revealed he has been approached to play one of Santa's little helpers, says The Sun.

Mark said: "I don't know if I'm even really meant to say, but I might be one of Santa's helpers in a film for Christmas. I think I'm going to be one of the people who clean out the reindeers."

He added: "I'm still not even sure I get to say words. I think I get one sentence, like, 'They're not ready,' or something."

He told the newspaper: "I said I'd write a song for it if I could be in it".

The singer said his main motivation for signing up to the film would be to impress his kids.

He said: "It'll be brilliant for my kids, that's what it's for. I haven't done any film stuff, so it'll be fun. I get approached about TV stuff every now and then, but usually it's just the kids asking me to fix the telly because it's broken."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Aquarius:

This is a great time to go shopping. You'll find some clothes, furniture or artwork that seems tailor made to your taste. Don't worry about spending more money than usual. The things you buy will give you years of pleasure. If you're looking for work, volunteer at a charitable organisation that is close to your heart. This will lead to a paying position that is emotionally fulfilling. You're tired of dead end jobs that leave you cold. It's time to move in a more rewarding direction.More
