The former Oasis frontman as teased he could be the special guest at The Legitimate Peaky Blinders festival, which takes place this weekend.

Liam Gallagher has strongly hinted he could be the special guest set for The Legitmate Peaky Blinders Festival this weekend.

The Shockwave singer may very well be dusting off his best peaked hat to attend the inaugural event, which will celebrate the hit BBC gangster series in Birmingham's Digbeth area where it's set.

Commenting on an Instagram post shared by the television show, the former Oasis frontman wrote: "Looking forward to seeing you on Saturday LG x"

Gallagher's message comes in the same month he hinted he could be set for a part in the series.

Asked by a fan on Twitter what his plans were for today (Thursday 5 September), the Shockwave singer replied: "Thought you’d never ask yeah I’m of to meet a man about a part in peaky blinders Why me Why not see ya".

Quizzed by another if his Brummie accent is any good, he said: "It's biblical".

It's not sure whether the Manchester rocker was talking about appearing on the show as well as the festival, but it's pretty clear that he's a fan, since Peaky Blinders creator Stephen Knight helmed his new One Of Us video.
