Daughter will never forgive me for rejecting X Factor, says Gallagher

Noel Gallagher's daughter won't "ever forgive" him for turning down a judging role on 'The X Factor'.

The former Oasis rocker has admitted that 14-year-old Anais - his daughter with ex-wife Meg Matthews - is still annoyed with her famous father after he rejected ITV's offer of judging position on the singing show.

Speaking at a Q&A session at Facebook HQ on Monday, Gallagher explained: "Every week we watch it and as I'm tut-tutting at the screen she'll say to me: 'You could have been there. That could have been you slagging them off.'

"I don't think she'll ever forgive me. I'm convinced I'm going to have to go in a psychiatrist meeting with her when she's 34 and talk about it."

When asked if he would ever consider going on 'The X Factor' as a performer, he said: "I wouldn't have thought I'd ever get asked. Have you seen who they get on to perform on that? They properly put a show on. I couldn't put on a show like that, I don't put on a show like that."

Despite being busy working on his new album 'Chasing Yesterday' - which will be released on March 2, 2015 - Noel admitted that he loves watching unusual TV documentaries.

He shared: "There's f**k all to do when you get to my age ... I watch telly, I watch anything with sharks in.

"I saw this thing the other night I think it was called 'The Nazis' Prehistoric Creatures'. They were trying to breed dinosaurs, even if that's b******s somebody's put that on the telly - I'm duty bound to watch it."

Gallagher's new single, 'In the Heat of the Moment' will be released digitally and on limited-edition vinyl on November 17.
