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.”
