Noel Gallagher: "I would bring back Top of the Pops in a heartbeat"

Noel Gallagher has sung the praises of defunct TV show Top of the Pops, stating that he would bring it back in a "heartbeat".

Speaking to Radio Times magazine, the former Oasis man bigged up the legendary music show and said that he is grateful to have appeared on it in the past.

He called it a "British tradition" and called for its permanent return. When asked if he laments the passing of Top of the Pops, he replied:

"Absolutely, don't you? I think everybody does. It was fantastic to watch it growing up and it was great to be on it when it was still going. I don't even know why they don't have it on any more. It was a great British tradition to have Top of the Pops on a Thursday, and it gave you a chance to see what these people looked like who you were listening to on the radio, and we don't get that any more. I would bring it back in a heartbeat."

As previously reported, Gallagher joked in the same interview that he would consider becoming an X Factor judge for £1m post tax.
