Noel Gallagher - Relentless Potty Mouth: Why Noel Gallagher Can't Take X-Factor Job

Noel Gallagher has confirmed that he was asked to take up one of the judge’s roles on X Factor but insists that he’s not interested in the job. mainly because he’d have to watch his language. An hour or two of not swearing every week? Too much for the Mancunian lad-rocker, it seems. He’d feel compelled to call Louis Walsh a “c***” apparently. Actually, perhaps we can sympathise with that one.

“Yes, I was asked to do it again,” said Gallagher but explained that his propensity for foul language pretty much rules him out of the race for the job: “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!'" Charmed, we’re sure. Noel also seemed to think that his fee would have be fairly astronomical, too – possibly not even one that the X Factor budget could stretch to. Working from the basis that Sharon Osbourne is getting paid one and a half million pounds for her appearance on the show, he reckons he must be worth at least £3 million. “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.”

Despite reports that Noel was considering the job because his daughter’s a fan of the show, it now appears that that is not the case. And he reckons he’s got better things to do with his time. Which, maybe he has. Maybe.
