Gallagher pokes fun at pal Brand

Noel Gallagher and Russell Brand discussed the comic's failed marriage

Noel Gallagher has revealed to Russell Brand that he placed a bet on how long the comic's marriage to Katy Perry would last.

The rocker told of his wager as the pair, from the original Russell Brand Show, reunited on Xfm to promote a week of Teenage Cancer Trust gigs in London.

"For the record in the sweepstake I came the closest," the Daily Mirror reported the singer as saying.

Russell, who arrived at his wedding in India on an elephant, replied to his co-hosts, who included Matt Morgan and poet Mr Gee: "Thanks, nice to know you're all behind me, very supportive, nice to know you're all supporting me."

He joked: "That marriage was shaky from the get-go, before I'd even got off the elephant."

He later quipped: "Let me tell you a thing about marriage. Marriage is a bond that can last up to 14 months... This is a sacred 14-month arrangement. Begins on an elephant. Ends in a newspaper..."
