Noel Gallagher says no to 'X Factor'

Friday April 8, 2011

With over ten years worth of experience in the industry, he would be the perfect candidate for the job.

But former Oasis guitarist Noel Gallagher has reportedly turned down Simon Cowell's offer – and £1 million – to take his place on X Factor.

The music mogul is said to have told Noel to "name his price" to fill his boots as judge on the hit ITV talent show.

But the 43-year-old declined the generous offer, saying he needed to focus instead on his music career.

He also insisted he had a "duty" to stop his brother Liam's band Beady Eye from "stinking up the bottom of the charts".

The future of judges Dannii Minogue and Louis Walsh is not yet known, but both are expected to return to the show.
