Noel Gallagher

    Oasis star Noel Gallagher took cocaine in Downing Street, in a toilet reserved for the Queen

    Oasis star Noel Gallagher once took cocaine in a toilet reserved for the Queen in Downing Street.

    Oasis was one of the most iconic British rock bands of the nineties. Lead by brothers Liam and Noel Gallagher, they produced hits such as Wonderwall and Don't Look Back In Anger.

    They were also known for their hard partying lifestyle - somewhat to be expected of a 'cool' nineties rock band with the personas of the Gallaghers. One audacious stunt by one of the brothers, Noel, has emerged: he once took cocaine in the Queen's toilet in the Prime Minister's residence at Downing Street.

    The incident apparently took place in 1997, during a reception with then-Prime Minister Tony Blair.

    Noel has not shied away from his past drug use, and jokingly admitted: "As I remember, it was quite nice. It had a velvet seat and everything.

    "She's got her own toilet which no-one else is allowed in. These were the days of the revolution.

    "Someone said, 'Do you want to have a look in the Queen's bog?' I said, 'Of course'."

    The luxurious toilet was fitted exclusively for use by the Queen, but it can be seen on guided tours of Downing Street.

    Noel's confession was broadcast on BBC Radio 2 during an interview with his friend, Russel Brand, on his show.
