No forgiveness for X Factor snub

Noel Gallagher says his daughter is still upset that he snubbed the chance to be an X Factor judge.

The guitarist was approached by show boss Simon Cowell earlier this year as he sought to fill the vacant places on the expert panel.

But the former Oasis star - soon to launch his solo career - would not entertain the idea, to the disappointment of his daughter Anais.

"Money was never mentioned," Noel said.

The rock idol was sounded out when it emerged that judging regulars Dannii Minogue, Cheryl Cole and Cowell himself would not be taking part this year. Cowell has been too busy launching the US version of the show.

"I told him he didn't really want me on there," Noel said, in an interview for The Sun.

"He insisted he did. I insisted harder that he didn't and he gave up asking. My 11-year-old daughter has never forgiven me," he added.
