Gary Barlow to star in Miranda sitcom

Gary Barlow and Miranda Hart Barlow will appear as himself in the BBC One sitcom

Take That star Gary Barlow is to guest star in an episode of BBC One sitcom Miranda.

A BBC spokeswoman said the singer - who will appear as himself in the show - will "get friendly in an unexpected way" with comic actress Miranda Hart.

The scenes will be broadcast in the next series which begins at the end of the year.

The pair previously worked together in the summer for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee celebrations.

Barlow is about to embark on a solo UK and Ireland tour later this month while continuing to judge on The X Factor.

Next week he is due to receive the Music Industry Trusts Award at a gala dinner to raise funds for the Brit Trust and Nordoff Robbins.

Hart is also currently promoting her first book, Is It Just Me?, which details her life's past awkward experiences.
