Liam and Noel Gallagher have been at each other’s throats ever since Oasis split, however, a recent report has claimed the pair are now talking again.
This has led to fresh hope the pair could reform Oasis for one last tour – something that would be absolutely biblical.
According to reports, Liam, 47, and Noel, 52, healed the rift between them with the help of their kids, after the youngsters encouraged the pair to get back on speaking terms.
A source said: “Noel and Liam are back on speaking terms and have been communicating recently, mainly by text. All the kids would love nothing more than to see their dad and uncle being friends again.”
It’s thought Noel’s daughter Anais, 19, and Liam’s sons Lennon, 20, and Gene,18, and daughter Molly, 21, are behind the move.
However, Noel was slagging off Liam’s new single as recently as yesterday, so the rumours of the pair making up could be way off.
He wrote on Twitter: “Nothing to see here dudes and dollies. Silence is still golden..and just in case you weren’t already aware someone still has a new single out. I believe it’s called “Once” which is the exact amount of times it should be played.”
Liam in particular is known for being incredibly active on Twitter, and managed to cause a bit of a meltdown among Oasis fans last month with a tweet.
The former Oasis star informed his followers that he was going to retire as a solo artist after album number three, adding the reason he’s quitting is because Oasis are set to reform in 2022, after he received a call from his brother.
He tweeted: “I intend to retire as solo artist after album no3 as I have just had a call from my brother begging me to start oasis again in 2022 if you believe in life after love c’mon you know LG x”
Unfortunately, Noel responded at the time, telling TalkSPORT Breakfast host Ally McCoist a reunion isn’t happening, adding that Liam must have been on the booze.
Ever since Oasis broke up back in August 2009, Mancunians everywhere have waited with bated breath in the hope of good news from either of the Gallagher brothers about getting the band back together.
Unfortunately, after each public argument that possibility seems more and more unlikely, but this latest development could be good news for fans.
Is the continued public animosity from Noel just a smokescreen for Oasis finally getting back together? What do you think?
Boris Johnson issues warning to anyone planning on going to the pub this weekend
Urging the public to be ‘safe’.
Boris Johnson has issued a warning to pub-goers this weekend at this Friday’s Downing Street press conference.
It comes as this weekend sees the biggest easing of lockdown, with the reopening of the hospitality industry such as pubs, restaurants, bars and cafes.
The Prime Minister addressed the country on Friday’s Downing Street press conference urging the public to act safely.
At the briefing, Mr Johnson urged the public to act responsibly as lockdown restrictions are lifted this weekend.
He said: “I know everyone will be looking forward to the relaxation of national restrictions. Businesses have put in a heroic effect to prepare their venues for this reopening, to work out a way to trade which keeps customers safe. “
“The success of these businesses and economic health of the country is dependent on every single one of us acting responsibly.
“We must not let them down. Lockdown only succeeded in controlling the virus because everyone worked together. We will only succeed in reopening if everyone works together again.
“We are not out of the woods yet.”
Venues will be monitoring and limiting numbers with many opening up new areas outside. Most places are also operating with a pre-booking system and in some cases, ordering via apps and paying contactless.

The Prime Minister warned that if the public don’t adhere to social distancing guidelines sensibly, then the government ‘won’t hesitate’ to reintroduce strict measures.
He said: “If it starts running out of control again – this Government will not hesitate in putting on the breaks and reimposing restrictions.
“Anyone who flouts social distancing is not only putting us all at risk but letting down businesses and workers.
“As we take this next step – our biggest step on our road to recovery – I urge the British people to do so safely.”
Pubs can reopen from 6am tomorrow morning, the government confirms
Pubs can officially open their doors from 6am tomorrow morning, the government has confirmed.
Pubs and bars can finally reopen after lockdown tomorrow, Saturday July 4th, and they can get started very early.
According to Downing Street, this has been put in place to stop pubs from ‘opening at midnight’.
While some police forces, like Devon and Cornwall, have said that there will be a two hour limit on staying in a pub, Number 10 has said this rule wouldn’t be implemented across the country.
They said that it would be up to different forces to implement their own rules, adding that coronavirus regulations won’t limit the amount of time people can spend in pubs and restaurants.
Talking about the new rules, the Prime Minister’s official spokesman said: “What [the regulations] do is put in place the 30-person limit on gatherings in private dwellings and outdoor spaces where not in a Covid 19-secure environment.
“The regulations also keep in place a list of premises that must remain closed and that includes nightclubs, nail bars and salons, indoor play areas, gyms, conference centres and exhibition halls.
“Those regulations mostly come into force at 12.01am on Saturday July 4th.
“The reopening of pubs and bars specifically comes into force at 6am. That would just be in the event anybody would attempt to try to open at midnight.”
Gyms can finally reopen ‘in a couple of weeks’, Boris Johnson announces
Boris Johnson has said that gyms will be able to reopen in the next few weeks.
Speaking on LBC this morning, the Prime Minister said: “We are going to reopen gyms as soon as we can do it in a Covid-secure way and I think that the date for reopening gyms at the moment, if we can do it, is in just a couple of weeks’ time.
“The best way forward for the country is to get the economy moving again. We want to get every part of our industry, including theatres, that are so vital.”
During the interview, Boris was asked why people can go to pubs and restaurants but not the gym. He replied: “People, I think, listening to this debate do know the answer to that, and that is to stop the spread of the disease.”
The Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport, Oliver Dowden, wrote on Twitter that: “Many people keen to hit the gym & keeping Britain fit is key in Covid battle.
“We’ve made lots of progress & I know steps businesses have taken to make their spaces & equipment safe. Subject to public health, our aspiration is to reopen gyms & leisure facilities in mid-July.”
Huw Edwards, the chief executive of UK Active, which represents thousands of gyms and leisure centres, said: “Many people will be understandably frustrated by the decision not to reopen the fitness and leisure sector from 4 July”.
He added: “Our sector’s safety standards are among the highest in Europe, where other nations have already reopened their gyms and leisure facilities safely.
“We have invited Government and health officials to visit any of the hundreds of gym and leisure centre show sites across the country, and witness how facilities would operate with thorough social distancing measures and hygiene standards in place.
“Any further delay to our reopening will threaten our nation’s recovery from Covid-19. With obesity the second largest cause of hospitalisation from this virus, gyms and leisure centres are equipped to not only combat Covid-19, but to support rehabilitation for those recovering from the virus.”
In lockdown personal trainers have been able to provide one-on-one training with clients outside and at a distance.
Many gyms have issued statements that they are ready to open, including PureGym, The Gym and David Lloyd.
