Welcome to the Daily Gossip: your daily stop-off to find out who in the world of music has been up to what.

Today’s top gossip:

Liam Gallagher has left Britain with wife Nicole Appleton and Oasis bassist Andy Bell. The news comes after Noel Gallagher announced his departure from Oasis on Friday (August 29). The trio, who were also joined by Bell's girlfriend, have all headed to Italy's Lake Como together. They flew straight from Paris, where Oasis were due to headline the Rock en Seine festival before the altercation that led to Noel Gallagher leaving the band. Meanwhile, the Gallagher brothers' mother Peggy has said she believes her sons could still patch up their differences. "They've had fights before and got over it," she said (various).

White Lies' Harry McVeigh says he wants to take time off before recording the band's next album. "I just want to chill with my family and friends and head somewhere hot," he said (Daily Star).
