Gary Barlow has filmed a small role in BBC comedy 'Miranda', where he will be pursued by both Miranda and her mother
Gary Barlow has joined the cast of 'Miranda'.
The 'X Factor' judge is set to play a love interest to lead character Miranda Hart in the BBC series, and he also has to fend off advances from her mother, played by Patricia Hodge.
A source said: "He has already filmed his scenes. The cast were thrilled he took part."
However, music mogul Simon Cowell is reported to be unimpressed at Gary working on a show on a rival network when the 'X Factor' reaches its climax in December.
The source added to The Sun newspaper: "Simon will want all the focus on The X Factor so he might not be too thrilled to know Gary is also on BBC1."
It was recently revealed the show may be turned into a film after the third series has come to a close.
A source said: "'Miranda' has been a really popular show and production companies have been floating ideas about making a film for a while.
"The third series sets a movie up perfectly, which is something she has always wanted to do."
