The outspoken rocker brought up the Arctic Monkeys frontman when talking about bands who come back from the States with a drawl.

Liam Gallagher has slammed Alex Turner's apparent American drawl.

The 44-year-old rocker has mocked the Arctic Monkeys frontman, who is originally from Sheffield, and accused him of developing an American/English accent.

The former Oasis frontman joked that the 31-year-old singer an mocked the R U Mine? singer's Elvis quiff and style.

When asked about singing in his accent by BBC's Greg James, Liam replied: "Yeah, the singing's alright for me, you know what I mean?

"It's when they do an interview and that later on down the line and they've been to America once and they come back and they start speaking American, you know what I mean?

"Like the geezer out of the Arctic Monkeys. He did it didn't he? He started getting his hair in a quiff and biker leather jackets on, you know what I mean?

"It's like when he goes back to his mam's does he really walk in with that biker leather jacket on and go (puts on American accent): 'Hey mom, can I have some tea?'

"She's going to give him a clip isn't she?"

Meanwhile, Liam Gallagher appeared with his mum Peggy and son Gene for a celebrity special of Gogglebox, where the rocker revealed that neither him nor his brothers Noel or Paul can swim.
