Liam must feel on top of the world right now, with a number one debut solo album, a sell-out London show at Finsbury Park booked for next summer, and an appearance on Gogglebox imminent.

He’s even enjoying himself continuing to argue with his brother Noel on Twitter. Good times for everyone involved.

And, with the former Oasis man heading out on a run of gigs that takes him all the way through till March next year, his loyal fans are currently enjoying his versions of a few classics from his band days that are peppering his set.

But one question which we’d never seen answered before: just which is his favourite album from the Oasis days?

Well, he revealed the answer in a recent interview with NME - and it’s probably not the one you’d expect.

He plumped for the much-maligned, although recently-reappraised Be Here Now as his favourite, rating it 10/10 and declaring:

“I love [it]. The only problem is our kid thought he’d be a bit of a producer, whereas Owen Morris – who is a producer – would have gone, ‘Leave it out with them Slash guitars, mate’, ‘This song’s a bit long’. That’s how it got long, and that’s why Noel hasn’t got fond memories of it. But I think it’s fucking class.”

His second favourite (also 10/10) is 1995’s (What’s The Story) Morning Glory? (“That turned us into proper, like, global, worldwide f**king idiots or whatever”) with 1994’s debut Definitely Maybe (yep, 10/10) taking the bronze spot (“Mega. Absolutely biblical. I don’t remember much about it, but obviously it’s stood the test of time”).

The others? 2008’s Dig Out Your Soul (8/10), 2005’s Don’t Believe The Truth (7/10), 2000’s Standing on the Shoulder of Giants (5/10) and 2002’s Heathen Chemistry (5/10, “I can’t even remember that one. I didn’t like the title either. ‘Heathen Chemistry’? Fuck off”).

And his favourite Oasis song? Well, according to a previous Q interview, it’s this one:

Hard to argue with that really, isn’t it?
