Liam Gallagher Makes X Factor U-Turn














Liam Gallagher says he has had a change of heart after pledging to perform on The X Factor.

The Beady Eye singer says he would prefer to appear on ITV chat show Loose Women instead of the talent contest.

Liam - who had previously called the pop show "annoying" - revealed he had backtracked on a slot for the programme during an interview to be broadcast by Absolute Radio.

Asked whether he was planning to perform, he said: "We're not confirmed for it. No, no, no - we were just messing about. Try to give them some ratings." He went on: "We've changed our mind now. No, Loose Women it is instead."

Liam's brother and former Oasis bandmate Noel has previously been approached to be a judge on The X Factor but turned it down, and Liam has now said he has no interest in joining the panel.

"No, I don't fancy judging anyone," he said in the interview, recorded before an acoustic gig at Abbey Road Studios which is being broadcast on Thursday.

Liam also talked about a confrontation with actor Idris Elba after The Wire star ruffled his hair at the NME Awards earlier this year.

"He messed my hair up, so I pulled his hat off and booted it across the room and that's it."

He went on: "I didn't know who he was. I still don't know who he is - you don't touch a man's haircut man. Especially if you've got a red bobbly hat on."

The Beady Eye gig is being broadcast at 9pm on Thursday during the Pete Donaldson show on Absolute Radio.
