Noel Gallagher - Noel Gallagher slams One Direction

Noel Gallagher has branded One Direction ''clowns''.

The 'AKA... What A Life!' singer - who made a rude gesture when the group performed at the BRIT Awards in February - was delighted to pick up the Outstanding Song Collection prize at yesterday's (17.05.13) Ivor Novello awards because the ceremony focuses only on music.

Asked why the awards mean something to him, he said: ''There aren't any clowns like One Direction here.

''It's not about what clothes you wear or how nimble you are or who you are s****ing.

''It's about the songs. Songs last forever. You can have that lyric.''

The 45-year-old rocker also admitted he would love to see his children, Anais, 13, Donovan, five, and two-year-old Sonny, follow in his musical footsteps.

He said: ''If my kids want to write songs, I can show them this trophy and say: 'Go on then, give it your best shot.'

''In 20 years I'd love to present this award to Donovan, but his songs are sh**e at the moment.''

And the former Oasis star - who was accompanied to the event at London's Grosvenor House hotel by wife Sara MacDonald - admitted he sometimes doubt his talent but usually thinks of himself as ''brilliant''.

He said: ''I never know if a song will turn out great or rubbish.

''I wasn't thinking about anything when I wrote Wonderwall, same as with most of my most famous songs. I go between thinking I'm very lucky or: 'Of course it'll be brilliant, I'm doing it.'

''I battle those demons every day, luckily the confident side usually wins.''
