Noel Gallagher has said he always wanted a stalker when he first dreamed of being famous, and now he’s actually got one.

The singer was talking about the early days of Oasis on Talksport, and said he always dreamed of having needless luxuries like a chimpanzee, a top hat, and a mirrored rolls royce.

“And a couple of stalkers,” he said, before adding, “I do have a stalker now. She’s German, actually.”

When presenter Andy Goldstein pressed him for more information, he said she regularly broke into hotels he stayed at and would shout under the door for him to come out.

“I’m calling my security guard saying ‘Get this head-case out of here!’ and she’s like ‘I know you’re in there!’,” he said. “She’s not the most attractive woman."

In typical Talksport fashion - the station is no stranger to brazen views and controversial comments - Gallagher was asked if his stalker would be easier to endure if she were more attractive.

“No! It wouldn’t change anything!” he said, laughing it off.

Phew. That could have been a lot worse.
