Noel Gallagher has revealed he once had an embarrassing encounter with Jason Donovan, when the ex-Neighbours star mistook him for a crazy fan.

The former Oasis star revealed he was waiting for his driver, also called Jason, when a car pulled up and he shouted at the driver, only to be greeted by the Australian singer and actor, who thought he was a fan.

Noel told Australian radio station Triple M: “I was thinking, ‘Did he think I’d just stood on the street going there’s Jason Donovan?’ Not cool.”

He explained: “I was out one night doing late night shopping. I was with my roadie in a black Range Rover, his name is Jason, and he went to park the Range Rover in a car park.

“He was coming to meet me outside the shops, so I’m waiting outside the car park and out pulls this black Range Rover that I think is my roadie, Jason. He drives straight past so I shout, ‘Jason, what the f**k are you doing?’ and this black car pulls up and it was Jason Donovan.

“He thought I’d just seen him in the street and was shouting ‘Jason’ like a fan. He wound the window down and went, ‘G’day mate how’s it goin? Are you alright?’ and I was kind of thinking, ‘What the f**k is going on here?’ About 10 seconds later my Jason pulled up behind him in an identical car. I was like, ‘This is so f**king weird’. “
