Take That star admits crush on Bleakley

Take That hunk Jason Orange has revealed he fancies television presenter Christine Bleakley.

The sexy popstar says he has been tuning in every week to watch local lass Christine as she trips the light fantastic on Strictly Come Dancing.

And he’s backing the One Show presenter to win the competition.

“I love Christine, I think she’s gorgeous,” he said during an interview with the Belfast Telegraph in the Soho Hotel in London.

“I’ve been watching it every week since it started and I think she’s great. I really hope she wins. She’s lovely. Is she married?”

Christine has been dating businessman Mark Beirne for three years and he has been a regular visitor to the Strictly studio.

Jason — who was rumoured to have enjoyed a fling with Lulu while recording Relight My Fire —said: “I’d really like to meet her.”

And Jason wasn’t the only member of Take That taken with local girls.

Howard Donald said: “I’ve always wanted to fall in love with an Irish girl. I just love their accents.”

Take That are playing Croke Park, Dublin on June 13 next year as part of a UK and Irish tour.
