The Oasis man performed Half The World Away for the charity special this weekend.

Noel Gallagher has paid tribute to Caroline Aherne again by performing Half The World Away, following her sad passing.

The track - which featured as a theme song on The Royle Family - was performed specially for Channel 4's Stand Up To Cancer this Friday (21 October).

Watch it below: 

Aherne, who co created and starred on the show and was a friend of Gallagher, tragically passed away in July, aged 52, after losing her battle with cancer.

The Oasis man first paid tribute to the Mrs Merton star at his gig in Nashville on the same day after hearing the sad news.

Addressing the American crowd at the Ryman Auditorium, Gallagher said: "I'm going to dedicate the following song to a friend of mine who died this afternoon. Her name was Caroline, she used this next song in a very very very brilliant sitcom called The Royle Family. 

"To wherever you are"
