Liam Gallagher took some time off Twitter following the death of Queen Elizabeth II.

The former Oasis frontman is known for being outspoken on the platform and giving his no-holds barred take on current affairs, but he was uncharacteristically quiet for six days after the news of the monarch's passing.

When asked by a fan six days later if he'd had a bit of a "Twitter detox," he replied: "Just paying my respects to da queen in it now im back ready to RnR".

It's now officially a week since Queen Elizabeth II's passing and tributes and stories have continued to pour in about the monarch.

One interview from the archives has revealed the monarch to have been a big fan of Twin Peaks when it first aired, even choosing to watch the cult classic on TV rather than a private performance from Paul McCartney.

In a throwback interview with NME, Twin Peaks composer Angelo Badalamenti revealed the story, which was recalled to him by Macca and revealed Queen Elizabeth II to be a fan of David Lynch's cult classic.

“Back when Twin Peaks was kicking off around the world, I flew by Concorde to London to work with Paul McCartney at Abbey Road, Badalamenti told the outlet. "He said, ‘Let me tell you a story’. Not long before we met, he’d been asked to perform for the Queen for her birthday celebrations.

"And when he met her, he started to say, ‘I’m honoured to be here tonight, your Majesty, and I’m going to play some music for you’. And the Queen says, ‘I’m sorry, I can’t stay, it’s five to eight, and I have to go and watch Twin Peaks!'”

Watch Badalamenti recall the same story in an interview, which features on the Twin Peaks boxset below:
