Liam Gallagher: "I wish I could swim"
Liam Gallagher surprised viewers when he appeared on Celebrity Gogglebox for their Stand Up To Cancer special, revealing he can't swim.
The former Oasis frontman was joined by mum, Peggy who said, "I love swimming. I don't know what I'd do if I wasn't able to swim". Liam then replied by saying "I'm jealous, Mam. I wish I could swim" before explaining how he can swim half a width but struggles in deep water.
Despite making light of the situation by comparing himself to "some mad, crazy salmon", the singer definitely isn't alone with a staggering 1 in 5 adults currently unable to swim in the UK.
