Noel Gallagher has revealed that the new Oasis album was originally called Bag It Up.

However, the guitarist was forced to change the title when his wife Sara MacDonald informed him Geri Halliwell had already used the name for one of her singles.

Gallagher told The Sun: "The missus goes, 'Bag It Up'? Isn’t that a song by Geri Halliwell? I was like, 'You've ruined my entire f***ing year'."

The rocker also confirmed that Robbie Williams's former drummer Chris Sharrock would be replacing Zac Starkey in the band on their forthcoming tour.

"It was too much of a temptation to p*** Robbie and Liam [Gallagher] off in one phone call," said Noel.
