Noel Gallagher ''locked horns'' with airport staff over a £65 excess baggage charge.

The former Oasis rocker reportedly spent 20 minutes at a British Airways check-in desk at London's Heathrow Airport on Monday (17.08.15) before he and wife Sara MacDonald ''reluctantly relented'' and paid the charge.

A source told the Daily Mirror newspaper: ''Noel and his wife locked horns with BA staff at check-in, where they were forced to pay a surcharge for extra luggage. It clearly wasn't the start to the holiday they wanted. After 20 minutes they reluctantly relented.

''As if that wasn't enough, they had a tricky time getting through security, with staff searching the kids' shoes - leaving both parents more in need of a holiday than ever.''

Meanwhile, the 'Wonderwall' hitmaker - who was jetting out to the south of France with children Donovan, seven, and Sonny, four - previously admitted he loves to spend money on his children as he wants the best for him.

Noel, who also has daughter Anaïs from a previous relationship, said: ''I don't want them to be scruffy oiks from a council estate. I don't want them to be like me.

''Just because I didn't have money until I was 26, I'm not going to deny them private school, holidays, cars and all that.''
