Noel Gallagher has admitted that his daughter Anais hasn't forgiven him for turning down a position on 'The X Factor' judging panel

Noel Gallagher's daughter won't "ever forgive" him for turning down a judging role on 'The X Factor'.

The former Oasis rocker has admitted that Anais - his daughter with ex-wife Meg Matthews - is still annoyed with her famous father after he rejected ITV's offer of judging position on the singing show.

Speaking at a Q&A session at Facebook HQ on Monday (13.10.14) Noel explained: "Every week we watch it and as I'm tut-tutting at the screen she'll say to me, 'You could have been there. That could have been you slagging them off.'

"I don't think she'll ever forgive me. I'm convinced I'm going to have to go in a psychiatrist meeting with her when she's 34 and talk about it."

When asked if he would ever consider going on 'The X Factor' as a performer, he said: "I wouldn't have thought I'd ever get asked. Have you seen who they get on to perform on that? They properly put a show on. I couldn't put on a show like that, I don't put on a show like that."

Despite being busy working on his new album 'Chasing Yesterday' - which will be released on March 2, 2015 - Noel admitted that he loves watching unusual TV documentaries.

He shared: "There's f**k all to do when you get to my age ... I watch telly, I watch anything with sharks in. I saw this thing the other night I think it was called 'The Nazis' Prehistoric Creatures'. They were trying to breed dinosaurs, even if that's b******s somebody's put that on the telly - I'm duty bound to watch it."

Noel's new single, 'In the Heat of the Moment' will be released digitally and on limited-edition vinyl on November 17. Watch his Facebook interview with BBC 6 Music's Matt Everitt at
