Rocker Liam Gallagher has revealed that his best ever Christmas present was one of John Lennon's guitars.

Theh 40-year-old Beady Eye frontman, said: ''I'd say the best was when I got a John Lennon guitar. Off my missus. An acoustic, really nice acoustic guitar.''

Gallagher added that he has received his fair share of bad gifts, adding: ''Socks, slippers, I get all that . . . '

He's looking forward to spending his Christmas in New York this year.

''I always have a good time at Christmas, definitely. I've got a gaff in New York now, so I'm out there this time. In fact, I've spent a good couple of Christmases out there before; that's how I got the taste for it. I've got some unfinished business over there, as they say in the spirit world.''
