Noel Gallagher's £1m
X Factor snub

Dream ... mock-up of how Noel may have looked with judges Dannii and Louis


By GORDON SMART, Showbiz Editor

Published: Today

NOEL GALLAGHER is thought to have turned down more than £1million to replace SIMON COWELL on X Factor.

Music mogul Simon told the former OASIS guitarist to "name his price" to fill his judging slot on the hit ITV talent show.

But Noel, 43, said he did not need the cash and wanted to focus on his music career instead – because he had "a duty" to stop brother Liam's band BEADY EYE "stinking up the bottom of the charts".

A source revealed multi-millionaire Si, 51, offered a "head-spinning amount of cash", adding: "Noel could name his price.

"Simon promised global fame and a crack at the US panel in future years. He was setting it up for him to make the show his own and fill his boots."

But Simon also wanted Noel to put his music career on the backburner to focus full time on X Factor. And with his first solo material on the horizon, Noel refused.

The future of judges DANNII MINOGUE and LOUIS WALSH is still undecided, although both are expected to return.
