Liam Gallagher isn't one to be pinned down by any work opportunity, that's for sure. He makes his own rules, including when it comes to requesting a part in his favourite TV show…

He's renowned as one of the most famous frontmen in the world, for one of the best bands in the world, but he's also started his own fashion label. A man of many talents, indeed.

Now the Manchester rocker has said that he may be trying out a new venture; swapping music for cameo acting in BBC One's 1920s gangland show, Peaky Blinders.

Now, take this with a pinch of salt because the musician loves a good joke on social media. He took to Twitter shortly to originally say; "Ohhh what a beautiful morning ohhhhh what a beautiful day."

However, when a user by the name of @issytate asked if he had any plans, he replied:

"Thought you'd never ask, yeah I'm off to meet a man about a part in Peaky Blinders. Why me, why not. See ya." he said.

The latest series of Peaky Blinders has confirmed that Cillian Murphy's turn as Tommy Shelby is as popular as ever, opening to its highest viewing figures yet for season five.

The series launched to an audience of 6.2 million, according to BBC Press Office. A Peaky Blinders music festival is even taking place in Birmingham later in the year.

As well as featuring stars of the show, there's also a full music line up that includes Primal Scream, Frank Carter, The Streets, a mystery superstar and more.

Kate Phillips (Linda Shelby), Finn Cole (Michael Gray), Paul Anderson (Arthur Shelby) and Paddy Considine (Father John Hughes) will meet fans across the weekend.

Tommy Shelby (AKA Cillian Murphy, Prince of Ireland) has recorded the poems 'Futility' by Wilfred Owen and 'The Ballad of Tommy Shelby' to be exclusively broadcast across the festival.

Tickets to The Legitimate Peaky Blinders Festival are on sale now and are available here.

Can you see Liam in a Paddy cap sporting a Brummy accent? We can't imagine him without his Manchester voice though, or squaring up to Tommy Shelby and coming away without a scratch.

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. 


Few family feuds have captured the public's attention quite like that of the Gallagher brothers.

Between all the sly digs and angry twitter spats, it's safe to say that Liam and Noel's relationship has seen better days.

However, it looks like the Christmas spirit may have got the better of the feuding siblings, with Laim revealing that the pair are on good terms once again.

The former Oasis frontman took to twitter to wish his brother a merry Christmas, saying how his was “looking forward” to seeing him tomorrow.

“I wanna say Happy Xmas to team NG it’s been a great year thanks for everything looking forward to seeing you tmorrow AS YOU WERE LG x,” he wrote.

Skeptical fans questioned whether or not the pair had actually reached a truce, with one user asking: “Your not going to have a meltdown on here come Christmas day are you Liam when NG doesnt reach out to you.”

To which Liam replied: “He's already reached out.”

So, could a possible reunion be on the cards?

We certainly hope so!


Most of us have been mixed up with a sibling on at least one occasion, right?

Whether a teacher confused you with your sister or a relative attributed your brother's enviable talent for tennis to you, we've all been there in some way.

And that includes the A-listers.

While appearing on Graham Norton this weekend, Noel Gallagher had to navigate a potentially awkward moment when the host fell short on his research, and accidentally confused Noel with his brother Liam.

Attempting to establish a connection between Noel and his fellow guest, Jack Black, Graham alluded to a project they worked on together, only to be met with confusion by both parties.

And then the penny dropped…



We'll be honest here, we don't think we'd have the confidence to reach out to Noel Gallagher on Instagram.

Much and all as he's mellowed over the last two decades, the thought of being shot down by one of the UK's biggest musicians isn't something we relish.

But not everyone is as brave as little Sam Fisher who felt the fear and did it anyway.

Putting pencil to paper, Sam invited Noel to lead a discussion about drugs at his school, writing: "We would like to hear about when you used to take drugs and how you turned it around."

Sharing a photo of the letter on Instagram, Noel joked: "Thanks for the offer Sam but as much as I’d love to come and regale your PSHE class with war stories from The 90’s I’m gonna have to pass as I’m currently in re-hab..I mean the studio!"

Most people would bow out gracefully following this tongue-in-cheek rejection, but not good ol' Sam.

Sending the former Oasis star yet another letter, Sam asked if he could play on stage alongside his idol, telling Noel he could find some of his performances on YouTube with a quick search.

A clearly bemused Noel was quick to share the second letter, writing: "Play on stage with me? Blimey you don’t want much do you eh? I’m sure one of my bitches at HQ will sort you out a pass of some description and we can hang out and exchange life stories."

"You can tell me tall tales from your PSHE class (whatever that is!) and I’ll fill you in about the 90’s. Can I just point out is not an open invitation to every other f*cker on the planet."

The posts have amassed more than 100,000 likes since their upload over the weekend.

Never change, Noel.


Noel and Lima Gallagher have been embroiled in a well-document feud for the guts of a decade, and now one Irish pop star is caught in the crossfire. 

While discussing his brother's new album As You Were, Noel made some less than flattering remarks about the new music. 

Noel insinuated that his brother's album was written by a number of different people, and that he doesn't feel it merits his opinion.

'I'm not sure I can be arsed formulating an opinion on a record that's written by an army of songwriters,' he told the new issue of I-D magazine. Ouch. 

However, Irish singer Niall Horan was then dragged into the mix. 

'Isn't the one from One Direction doing that?,' Noel said, using Niall's new album Flicker to diss his brother's music.

'The little Irish fella with the acoustic? At least he has the decency to play a guitar.'

'I'm not a fan.'

Perhaps Niall will have a 'I would very much like to be excluded from this narrative' moment much like his celeb pal Taylor?


Over the past decade or so, few family feuds have gripped the public quite like that of the Liam and Noel Gallagher.

It's a well-know fact that the brother's relationship has seen better days, but it looks like Noel has finally had enough and has called on Liam to “see a psychiatrist” following his criticism of the Manchester Arena benefit concert.

Last month, the former Oasis frontman dismissed his brother's emotional performance at the venues' re-opening gig, calling it a “PR stunt” and claiming he “doesn't give a f***.”

Speaking to The Sunday Times, Noel revealed how he thinks his brother should seek professional help after the the outburst.

"I don't say that as a joke," he said.

"Because young Mancunians, young music fans, were slaughtered, and he, twice, takes it somewhere to be about him. He needs to see somebody."

Once the brains behind one of Britain's most successful indie rock bands, the brothers have not performed together since Oasis split in 2009.

And judging by the latest comments, it doesn't look like we'll be seeing them on a stage together any time soon.


Last night, over 14,000 people descended on Manchester Arena as the venue reopened for the first time since a bomb attack claimed the lives of 22 people at an Ariana Grande concert earlier this year.

Singers, comedians and poets from around the world took to the stage for the We Are Manchester benefit concert, which was held to raise money for those affected by the attack.

The crowd were entertained by a star-studded line-up including Pixie Lott, Rick Astley, Louisa Johnson and The Courteeners, before Manchester native, Noel Gallagher closed the show with a heart-wrenching performance.

“Every time you sing, we win. So sing like you've never sang before,” he said before leading in an emotional rendition of the Oasis classic, Don't Look Back in Anger.

“So for any of you that doubt it-and some people doubt that Manchester is the greatest city in England…”

“I was sat watching Sky News and watching the minute’s silence. And one girl that was there and sang this song. And I don’t know if you’re here tonight, but I love you.”

The 50-year-old was visibly upset as he belted out the “anthem of defiance” to a crowd that were only too willing to sing along.

Speculation before the gig had led some Oasis fans to believe that Liam Gallagher would join his brother on stage, however, the Wall of Glass singer is currently in Spain for his solo tour.

However, Oasis fans were treated to renditions of Champagne Supernova and Little By Little, as well as Noel's solo material AKA – What a Life and Everybody’s on the Run.


Noel Gallagher is set to headline the reopening concert at the Manchester Arena.

The Arena has been closed ever since a suicide bomber attacked the concert venue, killing 22 people and injuring 60 more on May 22.

The venue will open its door once again on September 9.

Noel took to Twitter to share the news with fans.

'Saturday 9th of September, Manchester Arena will reopen with a special benefit concert to honour those impacted by May's atrocities.'

'The evening will feature NGHFBs and other top Manchester bands including Courteneers and Blossoms.'

All profits from the concert will raise money for the Manchester Memorial Fund, a charitable trust overseen by the Lord Mayor of Manchester which wil go towards establishing a permanent memorial for the victims of the 22nd My attack.'

Tickets for the benefit concert cost £25 and £30 plus booking fee and will go on sale at 9am on Thursday.



If you thought Liam Gallagher's apparent disdain for his brother, Noel, might have diluted somewhat upon the emergence of reports that Noel had donated royalties to victims of Manchester's recent terror attack, you'd be mistaken.

While appearing on Chris Evans’ show on BBC Radio 2 this morning, the former Oasis frontman seemed as determined as ever to fan the flames of controversy that surrounded the Mancunian siblings.

Leaving the dissolution of the world-famous band firmly at Noel's feet, Liam silenced any rumours of a reunion.

"Oasis, that’s done mate,” he told Chris. “That’s done and has been done for a long, long time."

"Regardless of what happened over the weekend or whatever – Noel Gallagher doesn’t want it. Full stop. He’s quite happy doing his stuff. He doesn’t want to have to entertain me because he knows I won’t stand for his stuff."

For more than two decades, the brothers have made headlines due to their tempestuous relationship which has led many to question the authenticity of their supposed feud.

Raising this particular theory with the singer, Chris was met with a resounding no, with Liam saying: "A lot of people think that man, but I wouldn’t put my mum through that."

"It is the real deal. We’re not fond of each other. He’s the middle child and I came along and just spoiled the party."

And if there was any question as to whether an Oasis reunion might be in the works, Liam told the public that his brother's attitude to the industry and the public has confirmed it's a no-hoper.

"He wants to surround himself with little yes men that he can hire and fire whenever he wants, but he’s not getting that with me," Liam said.

"It doesn’t matter about me digging him out or underlining the lack of empathy and sympathy that he has for people in Manchester," he added. "That’s got nothing to do with it. Oasis is done."

Well, that's us told.


As Liam Gallagher swaggered on to the stage at the One Love Manchester concert on Sunday, gathered crowds held their breath in anticipation of the appearance of his older brother, Noel.

But as Coldplay frontman, Chris Martin, joined Liam on stage for a rendition of Live Forever, the audience and viewing public were forced to conclude that the reunion millions so desperately wanted would not take place at the Old Trafford arena on this occasion.

And with Liam taking to Twitter to criticise his brother's non-appearance at a gig which will undoubtedly go down in British history, a source close to Noel has felt compelled to speak out in Noel's defence.

While Noel may not have been present at a concert organised to honour the dozens killed and injured at an Ariana Grande concert last month, the 50-year-old rockstar has been secretly doing his bit for those affected.

With Mancunians using Don't Look Back in Anger as their anthem in the weeks that followed the terrorist atrocity at the Manchester Arena, Noel has made sure to donate all royalties from the song to the victims and their families.

Commenting on the remarks and Twitter backlash which followed Noel's non-appearance, Radio X host, Gordon Smart, shared Noel's endeavours with the public.

"Loads of amazing musicians from Manchester couldn't play the gig, but none of them have been dug out. All that has come from that night is good will from most people."

"I've seen some unpleasant headlines about Noel and why he never played the gig in Manchester at the weekend," Gordan said. 

"It's only right to point out, and I don't think this is public knowledge because I'm sure he would never mention it, but I found out today that as soon as Don't Look Back in Anger started to appear spontaneously at the vigils, he made sure all the royalties went back to the families."

"That was before any gig was mentioned," he added.

"It seems wrong to me that Noel's getting a hard time for a reunion he was never part of," Gordan asserted.

"It's a shame any attention at all has been taken away from a really special occasion at Old Trafford. But there you go, true fact. He gave his blessing for the songs without any drama at all."

We wonder if Liam has any idea…


Well, it was certainly a birthday party to remember.

The infamous Noel Gallagher celebrated his 50th birthday last weekend, and it couldn't have been more star-studded.

The guitarist had a Narcos-themed bash (standard) and among the guests were Bono, Michael Fassbender, Alicia Vikander, Madonna, Stella McCarthey, David Walliams, and many, many more.

The music, the drinks, and the social media snaps were flowing all night long and it certainly seemed like everyone had a great time:
