The joy of romance

Ah, we're sure that Nicole Appleton's sudden announcement that she intends to marry mostly-man thing Liam Gallagher is driven by her real romantic impulse and nothing, nothing at all, to do with the new album heading on its way to shops.

Let's just hope that Liam doesn't decide to also drive sales of the Oasis best-of by announcing his intention not to marry Nicole. That would be heartbreaking.

Nicole chirrups away about how, effectively, they're married in all but prenup agreement:

“Absolutely yes, we will get married. Of course we will.

“Things are so great between us that it will just happen when it does. We haven’t planned anything and we are really, really happy — the happiest we’ve ever been together.

“There’s no pressure from our parents to get married but when we go to friends’ weddings, I think, ‘I want to do this.’

“We’re pretty much married anyway and I call him my husband sometimes. We come as a unit — where he goes, our son Gene and I go. Having children together is a bigger commitment than getting married — but we will do it.”

Nicole goes everywhere Liam does. Except, these days, to the top of the album chart.
