The former Oasis frontman took to Twitter to assert he wouldn't be staying in amid the coronavirus pandemic, but has stood by wearing a mask.

Liam Gallagher has revealed one of the reasons why he doesn't mind wearing masks.

The former Oasis frontman has been outspoken when it comes to some of the Government's measures during the COVID-19 pandemic, but he's never seemed to particularly knock the use of face coverings.

Taking to Twitter over the weekend, he railed against the idea that over 45s should stay in and pledged to go out with his mask on.

When a fan suggested he "dropped" the face covering, he argued that it was great for walking around with anonymity, replying: "I don’t mind the mask mooch about no f****er knows who you are sweet as".

The outspoken rocker also seems to have practiced what he preached, by being spotted out and about in London with a face covering while out with his eldest son Lennon.

Since they rarely agree on anything, it's no surprise that Liam's comments are in conflict with those of his estranged brother and former bandmate Noel.

The Ballad of the Mighty I singer got tongues wagging earlier this month when he revealed he refused to comply with the Government's guidance when it came to mask wearing.

Speaking on the Matt Morgan podcast, the Manchester singer said: "There's too many f**king liberties being taken away from us now. I've been in shops today. [They said], You have to wear a mask. Says who?"

He went on: "I choose not to wear one. If I get the virus, it's on me. If every other c**t's gonna wear a mask, I'm not gonna catch it off them. And if I've got it, they're not gonna catch it off me. I just think it's a piss take."
