Former Oasis star Noel Gallagher has told fans not to expect any solo material in the near future, following the band's split last year.

Asked about his plans for new music, he replied: "I'm moving house and my missus is nine months pregnant so I'm not doing anything until well into next year.

"I'll be doing nappies and all that malarkey."

His brother and estranged bandmate Liam has announced a new band, Beady Eye.

They are currently in the studio and are expected to release their debut album next year.

Noel Gallagher played his first post-Oasis solo shows in March, but has not yet unveiled any new material.

The singer and guitarist was speaking at the premiere of Blue Moon Rising, a documentary about his beloved football team Manchester City.

Gallagher appears in the film, which follows seven die-hard City fans through the highs and lows of last season, and also features several Manchester City players and manager Roberto Mancini.
