OASIS star Liam Gallagher is so thrilled his lover Nicole Appleton has been chosen to host British reality TV show HELL'S KITCHEN, he's agreed to sample the celebrity contestant's cooking skills on the programme.

Ex-ALL SAINTS star Appleton will interview famous diners for the show, which sees chefs JEAN-CHRISTOPHE NOVELLI and Gary Rhodes training celebrities to be professional cooks - and the WONDERWALL rocker will be waiting in the restaurant to support her first TV presenting venture.

She says, "Liam and my family are very supportive and I know they'll be watching every night and will come to eat in the restaurant. It's my first presenting role so I'll be nervous, but it's going to be great fun. I can't wait to sample the food and meet the celebrities. Hopefully I can inject some of my own glamour - I'm already shopping for outfits."

The show's second series will hit British TV screens on 18 April (05).
