Liam Gallagher has requested VIP tickets so he can attend this year's Chelsea Flower Show, according to reports.

The Beady Eye frontman - who has become well-known for his love of the bumblebee - asked for preview tickets to take in the sights of this year's annual gardening event, which runs from May 21 - 25. The Sun says he will be attending on the same day as the Queen, as well as the likes of Rod Stewart, Lily Allen and Ringo Starr.

Speaking about Gallagher's desire to attend the botanical exhibition, a source said: "Liam is one of the most unlikely guests in the event's history. His rampaging days are definitely over - which is a relief to organisers given the importance of some guests."

The former Oasis singer has made the headlines for a variety of unusual reasons in recent weeks, including allegedly professing his admiration for Made In Chelsea's Francis Boulle, warning a tramp to stop putting his crutches in his bin and nearly being killed after eating a blue M&M. He reportedly suffered an anaphylactic shock after swallowing the sweet while staying in a hotel on holiday, and was later taken to hospital where he was diagnosed with a peanut allergy.

Beady Eye are set to release their new album 'BE' on June 10, although Gallagher recently revealed to NME that the title hadn't been his first choice - he claimed he'd wanted to name the album 'Universal Gleam' but was outvoted by his band and label.
