Noel Gallagher has been stockpiling beer to keep him going through the coronavirus lockdown, saying, "the only thing to do now is drink your way through it."

Speaking to the Funny How? Podcast, he said he's been "panic buying booze" to help him through the pandemic.

"Now that the pubs are shut the only thing to do now is to drink your way through it." the 52-year-old said.

The dad-of-three lives in an isolated area in an £8 million mansion in East Meon in Hampshire and he has went urged people to stay at home.

"If you don't leave the house you'll be OK. I don't see anybody anyway, I ride my bike where I live and you get the odd car on the road but I don't stop to talk to anybody," he said.

"I can easily shut the door and stay in. We're out of London, so well away from the madhouse, we're alright. I live 75 miles outside of London now, so it's different out here."

However, getting the beers in has been problematic. "I was in the supermarket because I wanted to see the bare shelves," he said. 

"I was in there because I thought, 'I'll get a load of booze.' And all that was there was a load of gluten-free Peroni. All the beers were gone!"

Noel and Liam in "happier" times 

Meanwhile, Noel’s wife Sara MacDonald has opened up about her husband’s on-going feud with his younger brother, Liam.

Speaking to British Vogue magazine, she said Noel is in a "lonely, unpleasant place".

"I think Noel was singled out and bullied by his father," she said. "It's happening again. It's a lonely, unpleasant place for Noel to be."
