Noel Gallagher calls for TOTP return

Noel Gallagher would love to see TOTP back on air.

High Flying Bird and recipient of the NME Godlike Genius Award Noel Gallagher has said that he would love Top of the Pops to make a return.

The former Oasis star told the Radio Times that he loved the show as a youngster and that nothing really fills its place now.

"It was a great British tradition to have Top Of The Pops on a Thursday, and it gave you a chance to see what these people looked like who you were listening to on the radio. We don't get that any more. I would bring it back in a heartbeat," he added.

Noel also noted that he was pleased to have the chance to appear on Top of the Pops while it was still going strong.

Top of the Pops was cancelled in June 2006 after years of dwindling ratings. Snow Patrol were the last group to perform live on the show during the penultimate episode.
