Noel Gallagher loves 'Embarrassing Bodies'.

The High Flying Birds singer stopped his car on a busy London street when he spotted the Channel 4 show's presenter Dr. Christian Jessen so that he could tell him what a huge fan he is.

Christian told the Independent newspaper: "You'd be amazed by the people who are fans of the show. I was walking down Marylebone High Street recently and I was getting a sandwich or something for lunch and this big chauffeur-driven car pulls up next to me and this door swings open and a bearded, long-haired chap leaps out and he's like, 'Oh mate, mate, I just wanted to say I f*****g love your show'.

"It was Noel Gallagher and he said, 'Can I shake your hand?'. I was like, Noel Gallagher, sure you can shake my hand! That was a very surreal moment for me."

It is not just Noel who is a fan of the show, Christian revealed he often gets approached by people looking for medical advice.

He revealed: "I was having dinner with a friend I was at medical school with, and we don't see each other very often, so were having a catch-up, when this slightly drunk lady comes running over to my table and she hitches all her skirts up to show me her inner thighs and this stubbly, shaving rash thing, and wants advice.

"Well, of course, the whole restaurant can see, and it goes quiet, and I just wanted to curl up and die, and my friend was like: 'Is this what life is like for you now?' and I said: 'Yes'."
