Liam Gallagher has reportedly been told to mend his rift with his estranged brother Noel so their mother Peggy can enjoy her 80th birthday with her sons.
Former Oasis star Liam, 50, took his mother on a spa break ahead of her birthday tomorrow and Peggy is said to have told Liam to try and get on with Noel once again.
An insider told The Sun: ‘In recent years there has been distance within the family, especially with Liam and Noel at war.

‘Peggy has told Liam to mend the rift and she is hoping there will be genuine reconciliation.
‘Peggy was in a reflective mood and it would be the best birthday present if they’d finally make some steps towards patching up their feud.’
Liam took his mother to the five-star Cliveden House in Berkshire to enjoy a break ahead of her birthday.

He was there with his fiancée Debbie Gwyther and his three children Molly, 24, Lennon, 23, and Gene, 21, as well as his older brother Paul.
It comes after Noel said he will ‘never say never’ to an Oasis reunion.
The 55-year-old singer – who left the group in August 2009 after insisting he ‘could not go on working’ with his brother Liam ‘a day longer’ – admitted he isn’t against the idea of teaming up with his sibling again, but it ‘would have to take an extraordinary set of circumstances’.

He said: ‘You should never say never, [but] it would have to take an extraordinary set of circumstances.
‘That’s not to say that those circumstances would never come about.’
When asked by BBC Radio Manchester’s Mike Sweeney how he and Liam are getting on, he replied: ‘Oh, brilliantly, yeah. Genuinely, yeah.
‘He [Liam] has taken a year out apparently to find himself.’

But in October, Noel insisted there is ‘no point’ reuniting Oasis, because the Britpop band sells ‘as many records now’ as they did during their 90s heyday.
When asked if they would ever reform, he quipped on the Pub Talk podcast: ‘Er, would you go on holiday with your ex-missus?
‘As funny as this sounds. Oasis sell as many records now per year as we did when we were together. We’re as popular now in the eyes of the people as we ever were. And I’m happy with it.’
The Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds frontman admitted ‘there’s no point’ to getting back together as everyone is thriving – including his estranged brother Liam, who sold out Knebworth last summer after their iconic 1996 shows – since they left the group behind.
Noel said: ‘If we got back together there would be a circus – and there’s no point. Just leave it as it is. I’m happy. He’s doing his thing. He’s still selling out Knebworth. It’s like, mate, good luck to you, do you know what I mean?’
Last year, Liam said the Definitely, Maybe band – who have sold more than 70 million albums across the world – ‘should never have split up’ and he would ‘love’ them to get back together after their 2009 break up.
Liam told The Times: ‘If it happens, it happens. But I’m quite happy doing [my solo career]. We should never have split up, but we did, and this is where we’re at.’
