Noel Gallagher says there's 'no point' in Oasis reforming

Watch: Noel Gallagher opens up on possibility of Oasis reunion

Noel Gallagher has said that he sees 'no point' in Oasis getting back together.

The Manchester band broke up in 2009 after a backstage altercation between the two Gallagher brothers and have repeatedly said they would not get back together.

Gallagher, who now fronts Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds, reiterated the point on the Pub Talk show where he joked: "Would you go on holiday with your ex-Mrs?"

He added: "As funny as this sounds, Oasis sell as many records now per year as we did when we were together.

"We’re as popular now in the eyes of the people as we ever were. And I’m happy with it."

He elaborated: "If we got back together there would be a circus – and there’s no point. Just leave it as it is. I’m happy. He’s [Liam Gallagher] doing his thing.

"He’s still selling out Knebworth. It’s like, mate, good luck to you, do you know what I mean?"

While Gallagher appears to have little interest in reforming the band, his brother Liam has been more open to the idea. He said in an interview earlier this year: "If it happens, it happens. But I’m quite happy doing [my solo career]. We should never have split up, but we did, and this is where we’re at."

Since making their debut in 1994, Oasis have sold more than 90 million records worldwide with their first album Definitely Maybe being the highest selling debut record of all time.

Since splitting, Noel has fronted his own band while Liam formed Beady Eye with the other members of Oasis until they broke up in 2014.

Since then, Liam has released three solo albums, all of which have gone to number one. His most recent album C'Mon You Know was released in May earlier this year and was well received.
