Noel Gallagher has said he would rather reform Oasis than see Jeremy Corbyn become Prime Minister.

The former Oasis guitarist has made his distaste for the UK Labour leader clear in the past and called him a "lunatic" during an interview with radio station TalkSPORT.

The hosts had asked if he would rather see Mr Corbyn elected or reunite the band that famously explosively fell apart in 2009.

"I'd have to get the band back together, I think. I don't want that lunatic running the country," Gallagher replied.

He won't be voting Conservative any time soon though, having previously said some kind of invisible force field would prevent him from ever being able to vote Tory.

Gallagher had famously supported the New Labour movement in the 1990s and met former Labour Prime Minister in 1997.

He's expressed disquiet with Mr Corbyn several times in the past, famously calling him a "communist".

"The Tories don't care about the vulnerable, and the communists don't care about the aspirational," he told the Sunday Times in 2016.

It does look like Mr Corbyn is closer to moving into the official UK Prime Minister residence at No 10 Downing St than the world is to seeing a new Oasis album though.

Gallagher is currently touring as a solo act, while his brother Liam Gallagher has started working on his second solo album.

Liam Gallagher told a fan earlier in 2018 there were currently no plans to reform.
