Who knew that Gordon would try and drag a second day of coverage out of meeting Ricky Hatton at the Oasis Liverpool gig? Oh... you'd guessed, had you?
Even the people employed to make Gordon's stuff look seem less-than-inspired by some guff about how Ricky and Noel will share a small bus on a trip to Mexico (and how much would Gordo love a bunk on that charabanc, eh?). There's a half-arsed attempt to mock up how the brothers Gallagher and Hatton might look if they were in a Mariachi band, and then... they're reduced to sticking in a library photo of a bottle of beer. With the caption:
Wish you were beer? ... lads' road trip
Hatton, apparently, is going to be the new Michael Parkinson:
I met him afterwards as he left for an early-ish night as his gruelling training regime has kicked in.
He also has his own chat show, on a digital channel in the pipeline.
He said: “I want Noel on it. I’ve got great guests sorted already. It will be a laugh.”
I think that Gordon missed out a comma. Unless they're really going to just make Hatton present on a channel in an actual pipeline. And I'm sure that Hatton didn't mean that quote to read as 'I've already got great guests sorted, but I want Noel on as well'. Almost certain.
Noel, meanwhile, is going to put on his bikini and walk around the ring carrying a card reading 'ROUND ONE' or something:
Noel said: “I’m going to carry a belt into the ring for Ricky.
“He told me to hang it over my shoulder but I’ll be holding it up over my head, marching.
“We’re going to do a road trip to the Oasis gig in Mexico after. It’ll be a proper smash-up.”
It's like that bloke that Noel loves used to sing, isn't it? Love, love, love, love, love, love, love, love, love, love is all you need... love... love...
