Noel Gallagher says why he’s not getting Liam a Christmas present


Noel Gallagher has explained why brother Liam won’t be getting a Christmas present this year, quipping: “Liam’s been benefiting from my genius for a long time”.

Noel was appearing on BBC’s The One Show last night (December 14) when he was asked by hosts Matt Baker and Angela Scanlon about his festive plans.

Quizzed on whether his estranged sibling would be getting a gift this holiday season, Noel replied: “Well, Liam’s been benefiting from my genius for a long time, think he’s going to do with that again this year.”

Elsewhere in the interview, Noel was asked about a potential Oasis reunion, jokingly replying: “I would be thrilled to do it”.

Noel was asked about whether he would reunite the Britpop band if they were to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2019.

“I’d do it,” he answered coyly, before adding: “I guess you’d have to [reunite] to accept it. That’s if you accept it.”


Asked whether he was being serious, Noel then said: “I’m gonna say no,” before teasing fans some more by saying: “We can say yes. Shall we say yes?”

After some more pressure from the hosts about possibly reuniting Oasis, Noel joked: “Absolutely. I would be thrilled to do it.”

Despite brother Liam being keen on an Oasis reunion, Noel has previously said that reuniting the group would “kill me as a person”.
