Many of us scratched our heads when we heard Noel Gallagher was going to be on Brendan O'Connor's show.
"You mean the Late Late, right?" was the common response to hearing this. Alas, it was true - Brendan O'Connor was getting a guest you could actually pick out of a line-up.
However, O'Connor clearly botched this attempt at crossing over into the big leagues, as evidenced by Twitter's reaction.
Was so looking forward to Noel Gallagher interview...Brendan was AWFUL...it was painful & Noel is so witty what a waste #satnightshow

This #satnightshow interview with Noel Gallagher is painfully awkward. So many silences

Good to see Noel hasn't lost his "I couldn't give a high flying f**k about being here" face. #satnightshow

As well as a poorly-handled interview, there were accusations against Gallagher that he was (gasp) miming on TV.

Our highlight of the night, however, goes to this little moment when Brendan asked Noel to hang on so he could talk to Carlovian woman Kathryn Thomas.
