After teasing a 'big surprise' all night, the studio commentators cut to the empty stage where on walked one half of Manchester's favourite sons to the opening bars of 'Rock 'N' Roll Star'. Everyone gasped. It was Liam. Was Noel on his way too?

No. No he wasn't. Liam cracked on admirably, then spent the next day slagging his brother off for choosing to 'go holiday' rather than 'play for the kids'. After the magic of that night, normal service very much resumed.

Except it turns out the stick being sent Liam's way may have been a little premature, as the I that despite being spotted sunning himself on a yacht during his home city's period of mourning, the 44-year-old has in fact been donating all the profit from sales of the Oasis classic - which he wrote, by the way - 'Don't Look Back In Anger' to the We Love Manchester fund set up to support the victims of the terror attack.

"Criticism of a lack of empathy for his home city's plight is misguided," says Simon Kelner who made the claims.

So there you have it. The Gallaghers are officially both top blokes in their own way, even if that reunion now looks less likely than ever.
