Noel and Liam Gallagher

Westlife have officially made their long-awaited return to our lives, thank the gods, but it wasn't all sunshine and rainbows back in the day for the boyband.

The band stopped by The Graham Norton Show last week to perform their brand new single, Hello My Love, but Nicky Byrne revealed some spicy drama.

According to the radio DJ and member of the group, Liam Gallagher told the band to "f*ck off" the first time they met. Ouch, someone take the lads to the burns unit STAT.

The 40-year-old singer claimed the band flew to London in 1998 after signing a record deal, with Louis Walsh as their manager.

Byrne told Graham Norton; “So they were having a drink in a circle of people so me and one of the boys walked over and tipped them on the shoulder."

“Liam turned around and we said, 'Liam we're Louis Walsh's new band and he just went "f*** off”. So we just f****d off." The salt, it's just too real.

The group's new single is their first release in almost a decade, and it was penned by pop legend Ed Sheeran. 

Hello My Love went straight to number one on the iTunes on Thursday evening, and Westlife even got a congratulatory message from ex-band member Brian McFadden, despite rumours of bad blood.

Hello My Love has been popular with fans, but frequently compared to Sheeran’s hit Castle On A Hill as opposed to “your typical Westlife song”.

Nicky Byrne, Kian Egan, Mark Feehily and Shane Filan will embark on their Twenty Tour this summer, playing two huge gigs in Croke Park in July.

Kian reiterated his opinion that their fans would be “taken aback” by their new sound, according to Metro UK“Good songs are good songs, it doesn’t matter whether it’s a Westlife song or not.”

The Twenty Tour is their fastest-selling ever, selling a whopper 400,000 tickets within 48 hours of release. 



Much and all as we'd love the Gallagher brothers to draw a line under their tumultuous past and decide to play a stormer of a gig at Croker (too far?), deep down we know that that pair are unlikely to ever really bury the hatchet.

The siblings, who fronted one of the biggest bands of our generation, have made no secret of their inability to get along, and despite going their separate ways back in 2009, it looks like they're still incapable of being civil towards one another.

Proving as much during an interview with the Toronto Sun, Liam revealed that after happening upon his brother at a Manchester City game, he decided to forego the hearty handshake in favour of a nipple twist.

As you do.

"I think it was a football match in 2013 or ‘14. A Manchester City match and he was in one box and I was in another box. And I was in one floor and he was in the floor below me.” Liam explained.

"I went into see him and I pinched his nipple and kissed him on the ear. I don’t think we spoke," he added.

Offering an insight into Noel's reaction to the bizarre exchange, Liam recalled: "I think he pulled one of his faces like he’s sucking a f*cking lemon.”

Sounds about right.
