Take That star Jason Orange has struck up a friendship with TV comic Catherine Tate.

The pair met earlier this year when Catherine - who starred in her own BBC sketch show - played the chart star in a spoof for Comic Relief.

She joined Alan Carr, James Corden, David Walliams and John Bishop to play the parts of the man band, as well as starring alongside the real chart-toppers for the BBC sketch.

Jason and Catherine continued to stay in touch and have since dined together, The Sun reported.

Catherine, who is also famed for playing sidekick Donna Noble in BBC One's Doctor Who, has a nine-year-old daughter Erin.

Last month she was pictured as a pillion passenger on Daybreak host Adrian Chiles's motorbike after they had lunch together.

A spokesman for Take That said: "We don't comment on the band's private lives."
