Noel Gallagher sober after becoming hooked on local cider during lockdown

Noel Gallagher sober

Noel Gallagher has decided to quit drinking for three months, after becoming slightly too fond of local cider during the COVID-19 lockdowns.

The former Oasis star admitted during an interview on BBC Radio 2 he "got right into" enjoying a drink when the U.K. was forced to stay home during the coronavirus crisis.

"I drank a lot of red wine," he said. "Because I live out in Hampshire, the local cider is pretty spectacular. The good thing about country cider is you can't have that much of it or you lose the use of your legs."

Noel added that he was under the influence of alcohol when he wrote some new songs for his band The High Flying Birds.

"I'm kind of strolling around the house slightly sozzled going, 'This is a great life I wrote another song today. I might have another drink.' You can see people are just like, 'Really? Nice one'," he laughed.

Noel previously admitted he had pencilled in Sunday (12Sep21) as his sobriety date, and was planning to stay off alcohol for three months - which would take him up until Christmas.
