Noel Gallagher says he’s declined offers to appear on ‘X Factor’ and ‘Strictly Come Dancing’

'Me? Dance? Who gives a shit about ballroom dancing?'

Noel Gallagher has revealed that he’s had offers to appear on TV talent shows like ‘X Factor’, ‘I’m A Celebrity’ and ‘Strictly Come Dancing’.

The former Oasis member recently told The Sun: “I’ve been asked to go into the jungle… and twice for The X Factor. Some fucker saw I’d left Oasis, and thought I’d be unemployed. So I was even asked to do Strictly Come Dancing, which made me laugh the loudest. Me? Dance? And who gives a shit about ballroom dancing?”

Meanwhile, Noel Gallagher will appear on Match Of The Day 2 as a pundit this weekend. Gallagher will line-up alongside regular pundits Jermaine Jenas and Mark Lawrenson on the show, which is hosted by Mark Chapman.

In his role as guest pundit Gallagher will front a feature on the match between his beloved Manchester City and Newcastle as well as talking about the big games from Sunday, including Spurs v West Ham, Everton v Leicester and Southampton v Liverpool. Match Of The Day 2 is on BBC One this Sunday (February 22) at 10:30pm.

Gallagher’s appearance comes amid the promotional campaign for new album ‘Chasing Yesterday’. The singer and guitarist has done a number of interviews recently as he prepares to release the record, which is out on March 2.

Speaking to NME recently, he admitted he would love to accept Carl BarĂ¢t’s invitation to produce the new Libertines album, but the band’s insistence on recording abroad means he will be unable to participate.
