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."
