Take That Star Rejected By British Soap

Boy band star JASON ORANGE begged hit British soap opera CORONATION STREET to give him a job after TAKE THAT's split - but was continually turned down. The RELIGHT MY FIRE star was desperate for a career change following the group's disbandment in 1996, but despite his best efforts soliciting the TV show his acting dreams never materialised. He tells British magazine Attitude, "I auditioned for Corrie a couple of times, but I didn't get it. They seemed really keen but nothing came of it. "I was gutted but I realised that at the time I just wasn't in the right frame of mind to be a soap person, and they (producers) recognised that." Take That recently reformed and are recording a new album.
