Viewers loved the fun fact that Liam Gallagher revealed about himself on Gogglebox

You learn something new every day

Never change, Liam.

Liam Gallagher is up there with celebrities whose walls you’d love to be a fly on and, this weekend, we got a glimpse of what it’s like to watch the former Oasis frontman in his natural environment.

On Friday night, Gallagher took part in a special celebrity special episode of Gogglebox for the great cause of Stand Up To Cancer.

Having admitted that Gogglebox is one of his favourite shows, Gallagher sat down with his mother and son to catch up with the past week’s television and, as you might have expected, he stole the show.

He compared David Attenborough to God, he got well stressed out whilst watching University Challenge and he referred to Dame Maggie Smith as “thingy from that thingy.”

It was TV gold but Gallagher saved the best for one personal confession that even his son, Gene, wasn’t aware of.

After his mum revealed her regular swimming routine, Gallagher admitted that he couldn’t swim and while that might not strike you as too unusual, Twitter got an almighty kick out of the fun fact.

“You’re the only one out of us lot who can swim,” Liam said.

“Me, Noel and Paul can’t swim. I can do about half a width.

“Good for you. Swimming’s good. I’m jealous, man. I wish I could swim. I struggle when it gets deeper and that. That’s when I start flapping around like some mad, crazy salmon.

“I struggle having a shower!”

He even got an offer from former world champion swimmer and world record holder, Liam Tancock!
