TAKE That hunk Howard Don­ald has mar­ried girl­friend Katie Halil in a pri­vate cer­e­mony.

The 46-year-old chart top­per 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 cur­rent band­mates Gary Bar­low and Mark Owen are al­ready mar­ried.

And for­mer col­league Ja­son Or­ange – who left Take That last year – was also among the guests.

A spokesman for the band con­firmed the wed­ding, adding: “Howard mar­ried Katie at a pri­vate cer­e­mony for close fam­ily on Jan­uary 2.”

Halil, who grad­u­ated in graphic art and de­sign, has worked with Don­ald’s pals from the group by pro­duc­ing art­work for Owen’s solo re­leases and an­i­mat­ing the video for Bar­low’s Since I Saw You Last.

Don­ald was snapped in a pur­ple jacket af­ter the cer­e­mony, which took place at Ayn­hoe Park – set in 250 acres of gar­dens de­signed by Ca­pa­bil­ity Brown.
