Liam Gallagher is a man of many talents.

Not only is he known as one of the best front-men in the world, for one of the best bands in the world, he's started his own fashion label and has worked with the likes of Adidas to create some of the nicest trainers on the market.

Now the Manchester rocker has hinted that he might be going on another venture; swapping music for acting in Peaky Blinders.

Now we know Liam loves a wind up, especially on social media, so when he took to Twitter shortly after 7am, we definitely had our doubts as to whether he was being serious or not. We'll let you make your own mind up.

Could Liam Gallagher be changing music for acting?

Liam originally tweeted: "Ohhhhhhhh what a beautiful morning ohhhhhhhhhhhhh what a beautiful day."

A user by the name of @issytate asked if he had any plans, to which he replied: "Thought you'd never ask yeah I'm of (sic) to meet a man about a part in peaky blinders Why me Why not see ya." he said.

The latest series of Peaky Blinders has confirmed that people just can't get enough of Tommy Shelby and friends as it opened to its highest consolidated viewing figures yet.

According to the BBC Press Office, the fifth series launched to an audience of 6.2 million.

It's so popular in fact that a Peaky Blinders music festival is taking place later this year in Birmingham.

The Former Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher has hinted he is in talks with the BBC for a role in Peaky Blinders.

As well as featuring stars of the show, there's also a full music line up that includes Primal Scream, Frank Carter, The Streets, a mystery global superstar and more.

People who go to The Legitimate Peaky Blinders Festival will see their favourite stars gather to honour Peaky Blinders including Kate Phillips (Linda Shelby), Finn Cole (Michael Gray), Paul Anderson (Arthur Shelby) and Paddy Considine (Father John Hughes), across the weekend.

And the man himself Cillian Murphy, as Tommy Shelby, has recorded a performance of two poems - 'Futility' by Wilfred Owen and 'The Ballad of Tommy Shelby', which will be exclusively broadcast across the festival.

Tickets to The Legitimate Peaky Blinders Festival are on sale now and are available here.

Can you see Liam in a flat cap sporting a Brummy accent? Maybe Tommy Shelby would have finally met his match...
