Noel Gallagher has said there is "no point" in Oasis getting back together as they sell "as many records now" as they did when they were still together.

The Manchester rocker famously left the band for the final time back in 2009 just before they were set to play Rock En Seine in Paris.

The subject of Liam and Noel burying the hatchet and the band reuniting has been a hot topic ever since, despite both brothers going on to have successful solo careers.

Now, posed the question once more on Pub Talk this week, Gallagher replied: "Would you go on holiday with your ex-missus?"

Noel went on: “As funny as this sounds. Oasis sell as many records now per year as we did when we were together. We’re as popular now in the eyes of the people as we ever were. And I’m happy with it."

The Ballad of the Mighty I singer concluded: "If we got back together, it would be a circus and there's no point.

"Leave it as it is. I'm happy. He's doing his thing. He's still f***ing selling out Knebworth. It's like, mate. Good luck to you. Good luck to you."

Perhaps Noel has a point. According to the stats, as of 2022, Oasis have sold over 70 million records.

That's not bad for a band who haven't been together since 2009.

Noel has rarely ever changed his stance on the band's reunion, despite the fact he's talked fondly about the band over the years.

However, his brother Liam has remained more romantic about idea of the band getting back together, even just this year arguing that the band should have "never split up" and should reunite.

“I’d love Oasis to get back together,” he told The Times. “If it happens, it happens. But I’m quite happy doing [my solo career]."

He added: “We should never have split up, but we did, and this is where we’re at".
