Take That star Howard Donald has married girlfriend Katie Halil in a private ceremony.

The 46-year-old chart performer has been dating the illustrator since 2010, but they are said to have met two years earlier while the band filmed their Christmas TV ad for Marks & Spencer.

The couple married on Friday in the grounds of a country house in Oxfordshire.

Donald’s two bandmates Gary Barlow and Mark Owen are already married. Their former colleague Jason Orange who left Take That last year is believed to have been among the guests.

A spokesman for the band confirmed the wedding.
