Liam Gallagher has announced his wedding to Debbie Gwyther will now take place next year after being postponed due to the coronavirus epidemic.

He was due to marry his partner in Italy this summer and had previously insisted their plans wouldn't be affected, but he's now said it will be pushed back.

"It’s been put back now until next year because I think we had to wear masks and stuff and I am not getting married with a mask on," the 47-year-old told Zoe Ball while speaking on BBC Radio 2.

Gallagher has previously revealed some of the details of his wedding, including his and Gwyther's outfits.

"I'm going to wear a black suit. Debbie's going to have a Mariah Carey moment and change into an evening outfit."

He's also shared that he will be getting dance lessons prior to the big day, saying: "I'm gonna f***ing flamenco it up. We will be doing salsa all round the room."

The 47-year-old proposed to his girlfriend while on holiday last year on the Amalfi coast.

Gwyther will be Gallagher's third wife following his marriages to Patsy Kensit and Nicole Appleton.

He fathered daughter Molly with Lisa Moorish in 1998 while married to Kensit, with whom he went on to have son Lennon in 1999.

Second son Gene was born to Gallagher and wife Appleton in 2001. He is also the father of daughter Gemma, born in 2013, whose mother is journalist Liza Ghorbani.
