Video: Gary Barlow performs in Compare The Meerkat advert

Take That and X Factor star Gary Barlow has teamed up with price comparison website ‘Compare the Market’ for a two-part advert.

The singer first met comparethemeerkat.com boss Aleksandr Orlov in the first advert on Monday night during two episodes of Coronation Street on ITV.

The second of these adverts debuted tonight during the X Factor results show – which saw Hannah Barrett become the latest act to lose her place on the show.

The 90-second ad shows Gary and the Meerkats performing in a street party on the cobbles of Coronation Street.
