Noel Gallagher has shared the details of an ill-fated car journey he took across London with Paul Weller.

The former Oasis star was a passenger with The Jam star Paul at the wheel when they went to visit a sick pal, he told The Sun's Gordon Smart on his XFM show.

Rock royalty Noel and Paul were on their way to visit Beady Eye guitarist Gem Archer who recently broke his leg in a bathroom accident at home while recovering from fracturing his skull.

Noel, who got a lift from neighbour Paul, said: "Weller just threw the sat nav at me and said, 'Do you know how to work it?' Obviously, I said 'no' - I don't even drive.

"I'm a world-famous rock star, I've got people and a beautiful wife to do that for me."

The pair set off anyway but shocked a passer-by when they had to stop for directions.

Noel continued: "So off we go, with no idea of the route. Driving around North London, with me trying to tell him the right direction.

"He was cutting people up and calling them all sorts. We stopped to ask this lad if he knew where to go. He nearly had a heart attack when he saw us in the car."
