Noel Gallagher turns down X Factor role

Noel Gallagher has revealed that keeps turning down a job as an X Factor judge because he doesn’t want to be on TV every weekend.

The former Oasis man has regularly been linked to a role on the show but nothing has materialised.

The Mancunian revealed that he has again been offered the chance to become a judge on the UK show – something that he declined. Gallagher said:

“Yes, I was asked to do it again. I think they think that because my tour’s finished I’m going to be bored, but I’m never going to be that bored. Sharon Osbourne gets £1.5 million for it, I’ve heard. If she’s worth one and a half, what am I worth? Three? Three and three quarters? I’ve not got anything against the show, I just don’t want to be on the telly every Saturday night. F**k that.”

He added: “You may be aware, I’ve got a slight case of Tourette’s syndrome and I would just end up saying to Louis Walsh, ‘Will you shut up, you c**t!’.”

The current line-up for the UK X Factor is Louis Walsh, Gary Barlow, Nicole Scherzinger and Tulisa.
