Noel Gallagher Turns Down The X Factor Again

April 30, 2013 | Posted by Joseph Lee

In an interview with Q Magazine (via NME), Noel Gallagher said that he turned down another offer to join the UK version of The X Factor.

He said: “Yes I was asked to do it again. I think they think that because my tour’s finished I’m going to be bored, but I’m never going to be that bored. Sharon Osbourne gets £1.5 million for it, I’ve heard. 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, fuck that. 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!’

He was previously contacted to join the show in 2011, and turned it down because he was working on his debut solo album. He said his daughter Anais was upset he turned it down. He added: “She has never forgiven me for turning him down. I told her I’m not doing it, it’s not for me — but she just screamed in my face, ‘But Dad, it’s The X Factor’.
