Gallagher has spoken of his admiration for Ono's late husband, ex-BEATLE John Lennon, on many occasions, and yesterday took the opportunity to behave chivalrously towards her again.
He said, "I love this woman. I love Yoko. Every time I see her I just want to give her a hug and protect her."
At the ceremony Oasis took home two awards - Best Album for DON'T BELIEVE THE TRUTH and The People's Choice Award - while Ono picked up the Special Award on behalf of Lennon.
