The Voice books Liam Gallagher

Liam Gallagher and his band Beady Eye are to appear on The Voice

Liam Gallagher has been booked as an unlikely guest on BBC1 talent show The Voice - and claimed it has been an ambition to appear on the series.

The star will perform with his band Beady Eye on this weekend's semi-final, just days after he made a U-turn on a pledge to appear on rival TV hit show The X Factor, claiming he had just been "messing about".

Liam, whose band's new album BE is soaring towards the top of the charts this weekend, has defended his planned appearance in anticipation of criticism for showing up on the pop show.

"Really looking forward to doing The Voice - it's been a lifelong ambition," he said.

"If being asked to sing live and in tune on a programme that promotes the voice is a crime then shoot me."

Liam said earlier this year that the group were aiming to appear on X Factor but last week announced: "We've changed our mind now."

The singer's brother Noel was once sounded out by Simon Cowell to be an X Factor judge, but declined.

Beady Eye will perform new single Second Bite Of The Apple on Saturday's edition of The Voice.

If you act like you don't care about the outcome of a situation, they won't be paralysed with uncertainty. You have a tendency to make people nervous.More
