Noel Gallagher has been ‘panic buying booze’ to get through coronavirus lockdown

Noel Gallagher has admitted that he prefers to booze while staying self-isolated with his wife Sara MacDonald due to the pandemic.

Speaking on Matt Morgan’s Funny How? Podcast, Noel said: “I’ve been panic buying booze. Now that the pubs are shut the only thing to now is to drink your way through it.

“If you don’t leave the house you’ll be OK. I don’t see anybody anyway, I ride my bike where I live and you get the odd car on the road but I don’t stop to talk to anybody. I can easily shut the door and stay in.”

The 52-year-old songwriter described how he began panic buying alcohol after noticing it had all sold out in his local supermarket, MusicNews reports.

Noel, who now lives in Hampshire, explained: “We’re out of London, so well away from the mad house, we’re alright. I live 75 miles outside of London now, so it’s different out here, I was in the supermarket because I wanted to see the bare shelves. I was in there because I thought, ‘I’ll get a load of booze’. And all that was there was a load of gluten-free Peroni. All the beers were gone!
