Uh, what’s the deal with Lily Allen and Liam Gallagher’s plane “romp”?


Nine years on from an infamous flight Lily Allen took with Liam Gallagher, the pop star is set to detail what really happened during those 11 hours.

In 2009, the then-married Oasis singer and Allen caused quite a stir in first class as they got drunk, shouted and swore during a flight from London on their way to the Fuji Rocks festival in Japan.

At the time, the Daily Mail reported the two stars were told to “calm down” by crew members as their raucous behaviour was disturbing the other passengers. However, in gossip circles, the account was far less innocent, with rumours swirling the pair had actually slept together.

Now Allen’s memoir, My Thoughts Exactly, due out this year will reportedly spill exactly what unfolded between the two musicians.

A source told The Sun that the 32-year-old’s agent is claiming “nothing has been held back” when detailing the incident, which UK tabloids are now referring to as a “romp” – whatever that may mean.

“Everyone who read it was stunned as it’s amazing stuff and could be dynamite,” they said.

The book also might include an account of Allen’s run-in with Liam and then- wife, All Saints singer Nicole Appleton, who was said to have “grilled” her husband over the flight.


It certainly seems that Appleton has some feeling left over the incident, despite their marriage ending in 2013 over Liam’s affair and “love child” with US journalist Liza Ghorbani.

She sent out an ominous-sounding tweet in the hours after the news of the book broke.

We bet she also can’t wait to get her hands on Lily’s book when it comes out later this year.
