Take That star GARY BARLOW is friends with rock wildman Liam Gallagher, and claims the Oasis singer is nothing like his reputation suggests. Barlow, whose former bandmate Robbie Williams fell out spectacularly with Liam and brother Noel Gallagher in the mid-1990s, insists the SUPERSONIC star is a "nice guy". He says, "Liam is a top bloke and he's not as big a hardman as people think. "Whenever I see him he gives me a hug and we have a nice chat. We get on well. "I know we've got completely different styles of music and all that but he's a nice guy."
