Noel Gallagher has revealed his mum is about the ‘only one’ who acknowledges his birthday as he turns 56 on Monday.

The Oasis singer – who is famously not on the best of terms with his brother and ex-bandmate Liam Gallagher – certainly isn’t expecting a fuss for his big day.

This comes after it was revealed in January that the Wonderwall hitmaker and his wife Sara MacDonald, 51, were divorcing after 22 years.

Chatting on The One Show tonight, Alex Jones asked Noel whether his mum would be getting him a birthday card on Monday.

‘I think my mum might be the only one who bothers to acknowledge it,’ said the forever-blunt indie rocker.

‘The thing is,’ he continued, ‘I always feel you should acknowledge your mum on your birthday seeing as she was the one that was doing all the hard work.’

‘Yes, I like you even more,’ replied Alex, and we must say he’s got a point there.

Fans were loving having Noel on the sofa promoting his new album, Council Skies, as many confessed to being distracted by how uncomfortable he looked throughout.

Many said Noel looked like he’d been ‘taken hostage’ in a hilarious string of likeminded tweets.

‘Have they taken Noel Gallagher hostage? Blink twice if you need help bruv,’ wrote one concerned fan.

Another said: ‘Is that bloke in a hostage video?’

‘All I can think about while all this extra stuff is on is Noel sitting miserable as sin on the sofa, wishing he wasn’t there,’ chimed in another viewer.

Joking about Noel’s poker face, another said: ‘I bet the green room was fun this evening.’

This recent appearance comes after Noel recently broke his silence on the divorce, blaming the split on a ‘midlife crisis’ and having come to a ‘crossroads’.

‘When you get to your mid-50s, you do come to some kind of crossroads in your life,’ he explained in quotes obtained by The Sun.

‘It’s not uncommon for people who have been in long-term relationships to go their separate ways in their fifties.

‘I know a lot of people in the same boat as me and Sara.

‘Particularly after the pandemic.

‘The midlife crisis thing is true for men and women,’ he said.

The former couple share two children, Donovan, 15, and 12-year-old Sonny, while Noel also shares 22-year-old daughter Anais with ex wife Meg Mathews.
