Take That Singer Jason Orange To Play DJ On Shameless

Take That star Jason Orange is making a foray into acting and will appear in the final series of Channel 4's Shameless. The singer, 42, will head to the fictional Chatsworth Estate as DJ Scouse Mouse, who runs a music festival in the neighbourhood frequented by Frank Gallagher and company.

According to the BBC, it is thought Orange filmed the scenes this week, before getting a tour of the set, including The Jockey, the boozer favoured by Frank. In October, it was announced the long-run series was to come to an end after eleven series. The final batch of episodes will also feature the return of Ann-Marie Duff, the actress who rose to fame in the comedy as Fiona Gallagher before going on to become a highly respected theatre and film actress. She is married to the Scottish star James McAvoy. A show insider told the Daily Telegraph that Take That singer Orange was "nervous" before getting in front of the camera, though was a big hit with the rest of the cast. Another show source told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "[Jason] had a great time on set and was line perfect for a triumphant TV acting debut."

It's not the first time Jason has played a DJ on television, starring as Brent Moyer in 1998's Killer Net television series.
