|Liam's home ... and for once his gob stays shut
Tell us the tooth ... Liam
at Heathrow last night
MOUTHY LIAM GALLAGHER stayed tight-lipped as he flew in to Britain late last night to hide his shattered teeth.
The OASIS singer swaggered through Heathrow after jetting in from Germany nursing the injuries from his fight in a posh Munich hotel.
When he did give a slight glimpse of his teeth he appeared to have had temporary crowns or a bridge fitted.
Liam did not speak on the 90-minute flight from Germany, communicating with aides by nods and grunts.
The British Airways cabin crew had been told not to speak to him and the captain had asked passengers not to take his picture.

of his broken front teeth yesterday
Liams face showed no signs of the brawl but at times he grimaced
and appeared in pain.
JEORG WALLMULLER said: Gallagher was like a wild animal. I have never seen such violence.
One minute we were playing the THE DOOBIE BROTHERS hit Long Train Runnin, the next we were in the middle of a cowboy-style brawl.
I didnt realise the people fighting were famous rock stars. I thought they were drunks whod had too many cocktails.
Fight scene ... entrance to the plush hotel
The first sign of trouble came when we took a break then heard
the Oasis drummer ALAN WHITE playing our drums on stage. He was absolutely
plastered and we asked him to go away.
The guests scattered then Gallagher jumped on stage with blood pouring from his mouth.
I could see his two front teeth had gone but he was demented and screamed as he grabbed our microphone stand, swung it over his head and flung it at the Italians.
It was like hell on earth. We played Easy by The Commodores to try to calm things down but by then the evening had been ruined.

Oasis crew members STEVEN ALLEN, PHILIP SMITH and ROBERT NASH were charged
with assault, criminal damage and trespass.
X-rays have shown that Liams mouth injuries, caused by a heavy object, were far worse than first feared.
He is expected to undergo surgery today. The operation will cost £20,000 and Liam will be unable to sing for at least two weeks.
The groups four remaining sold-out gigs in Germany have been pulled and dates in Cardiff, Brighton, Plymouth, Sheffield, Liverpool and Birmingham over the next fortnight are in doubt.
NOEL GALLAGHER, who was not in the hotel when the fight happened, is furious with his brother because the band could lose £1million in claims from promoters and lost earnings.
The pair have not spoken for two months since Liam walked off stage in Japan.
The four brawlers have already lost £180,000 paid in bail money after German prosecutors turned it into a fine.
They were warned the figure could double when the case goes to court next month.
But the threat of a possible two-year jail term for Liam has been lifted.
Oasis sources say the fight could be the final nail in the bands coffin. An insider told me: Make no bones about it this is a very serious issue. The tour is in real crisis and there is a general feeling of doom surrounding the future of the band.
Lets face it, its not been a great year. Their latest album was panned and Liam keeps losing his voice. The whole things a disaster.
