Liam gettin married today

Liam Gallagher is marrying his long-term All Saints girlfriend Nicole Appleton today.

The showbiz couple, who have been together for nearly eight years, were keen to keep the wedding quiet.

Liam's brother Noel will be at the small gathering, as well as Nicole's sister Natalie and her husband Liam Howlett of the Prodigy.

Speaking exclusively to the Mirror, Nicole, 32, said: "It's important to me and I love the idea of being married."

"A few of my friends are getting married and it's such a stress.

"It becomes like a circus and people don't dare mention the w-word."

Nicole has been credited with taming the Oasis wildman.

She said: "When I see him strutting on to the stage I don't recognise him."

"He's like a lion tamer and with a crack of the whip he controls the fans.

"He can't do that to me. At home, I'm the lion tamer. Definitely."

There is every chance of a brother or sister for the couple's son Gene, six.

Nicole, who had an abortion when she was engaged to Robbie Williams in the late 90s, told the Mirror: "I'd like to have more kids but we haven't got any immediate plans.

"I love being a mum and I'm very happy with my little boy.

"I don't want to take any time or attention away from him."

With Nicole by his side, it seems Liam has put his party days behind him and prefers to watch reality TV at their North London home.

She said: "He loves X Factor and really got into Hell's Kitchen. We love those kind of shows - Big Brother, Strictly Come Dancing, Jeremy Kyle."

Liam, 35, divorced Emmerdale and Holby star Patsy Kensit, the mother of his son Lennon, eight, in 2000.

He also has a daughter, Molly, nine, with singer Lisa Moorish.

Nicole said: "Liam is the best daddy in the world.

"He does the school run every day and would do anything for the kids."

Meanwhile Nicole is busy with her new role for ITV Mobile.

She joins fellow All Saints member Mel Blatt, Emma Griffiths and Dave Berry travelling the country with The Hot Desk interviewing celebs from the world of music, film, TV and sport.

Mobile phone users can download the service free and access a bank of in-depth interviews with stars.

Nicole said: "It's going to be great to be the interviewer for a change."

She also revealed Liam and Noel are getting on better these days after years of bickering.

Nicole said: "Everything's great between them. Noel's new baby Donovan is gorgeous.

"His cousins adore him. It's one big happy family."
