Liam Gallagher encourages fans to donate their parkas to the homeless

Liam Gallagher, 47, has urged his fans to donate their parkas to the homeless this winter.

The former Oasis frontman, who is known for his trademark outerwear, revealed if his followers "part with their parka" they could be in with a chance of bagging tickets to one of his upcoming UK shows.

Taking to Instagram, the singer posted a picture of himself with a lengthy caption underneath.

He wrote: "Calling all Parka Monkeys. No one plans on being homeless. Yet 5,000 people in the UK sleep on the streets on any given night.

"We’re asking you to help this winter by donating a coat or parka.

"In return for your donation, you’ll have the chance to win a pair of tickets, plus a meet and greet with Liam (one winner for each show on the UK Nov tour)."

The 13-date tour, which kicks off on November 11, will see the Mancunian musician perform his latest album and back catalogue of hits at crowds in Cardiff, London, Aberdeen and Nottingham.

And despite him selling out his forthcoming shows, the singer revealed he's already eyeing up a slot at next year's Glastonbury festival.

The singer has played the coveted UK festival six times – three times with Oasis, once with Beady Eye, and in 2017 and earlier this year as a solo artist.

Looking to making it a solo hat-trick, he said: "F**kin' hell, why not? I'll play it again.

"I'm not arsed about headlining. I've f**kin' done all that. I'll put it out there: I'll play a tent anywhere. A little small gig in a little sweaty tent will do me, man," he recently told GQ.

Turning down a performance on a larger stage, he said: "But I'm certainly not arsed about f**kin' headlining or being on another stage. Get me in a f**kin' little moody tent and it's f**kin' sweating, it'll go off."
