The younger Gallagher brother, who has long been calling for the group to reform, has been posting regularly on social media throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, sending messages of support and funny videos to encourage fans to wash their hands.

His latest message on Tuesday brought up the much longed-for Oasis reunion once again.

He said he was "sick of pleading" and added: "I demand an Oasis reunion after this is all over", saying all proceeds should go to the NHS.

Within two hours, the tweet had received more than 60,000 likes and 10,000 retweets.

Liam and his brother and former bandmate Noel have been locked in a long-running feud since the group's acrimonious split in 2009.

While Liam has said many times he would love for the band to reform and his "bags are packed" ready, Noel has always made it clear that a reunion is unlikely.

Both brothers have enjoyed success since the break up of Oasis, with Liam recording two solo albums and Noel performing with his High Flying Birds band.

And any chances of Noel softening on his reunion stance might have been harmed straight away, with Liam following up his reunion NHS tweet with a dig at his brother's solo work.

So it's probably still off the cards, at least for a while.

Liam has become an unlikely motivator throughout the coronavirus outbreak, offering some much-need light relief with videos turning some of Oasis's biggest hits into public service announcements.

Stay at home to stop coronavirus spreading - here is what you can and can't do. If you think you have the virus, don't go to the GP or hospital, stay indoors and get advice online. Only call NHS 111 if you cannot cope with your symptoms at home; your condition gets worse; or your symptoms do not get better after seven days. In parts of Wales where 111 isn't available, call NHS Direct on 0845 46 47. In Scotland, anyone with symptoms is advised to self-isolate for seven days. In Northern Ireland, call your GP.
