The hilarious programme shows the pair playing fictionalised versions of themselves as they travel around the UK and abroad reviewing restaurants. Typically, chaos ensues as uptight Steve gets embarrassed by happy-go-lucky Rob. The fourth and last season airs tonight on Sky One at 10pm and NOW TV. Eager fans of the show include legendary lead singer of Oasis, Liam Gallagher, 47, who claimed to “f***ing love it”. Now, Liam’s account of a night out he had with Steve has re-emerged.
In a 2017 interview with Noisey, for their ‘British Masters’ series, they quizzed the Mancunian on his time working in rock and roll.
When asked his opinion about The Trip, he expressed his “love” for the two protagonists and the show, but added: “Love [Steve] Coogan more though.
“Cause you just look at him and you go – even though he’s cleaned up his s*** and all that – he just looks f***ing like he’s close to the bone.”
Liam then went onto recount their unusual shenanigans, while hanging out at a wedding shortly after Oasis had released ‘Wonderwall’ in 1995.

The frontman stated that he only “partied with him once” but nonetheless the one account seemed pretty unforgettable.
The performers were sitting at a bar “in this dungeon thing”, when a group approached them and continued to hassle Liam to sing ‘Wonderwall’.
Liam told them: “‘I ain’t singing Wonderwall man. Nah, none of that nonsense,’ and think just around about that time it was out.
“I was going I ain’t singing none of that s***, [Steve’s] going ‘Leave him alone, I’ll f***ing sing a song’ and I don’t think they really knew who he was.”

Steve, 54, who is most well known for his character Alan Partridge, took Liam’s place and eagerly went on the microphone.
Liam recalled: “He got up on stage and sung ‘It’s Not Unusual’ by Tom Jones but f***ing mega.
“I’m at the back laughing, rolling around, and they’re all going (in an Irish accent), ‘I don’t know what you’re laughing at he’s better at singing than you.’”
After the two of them “drank a load of Guinness” before they stumbled back to Liam’s hotel room and then “definitely crashed out”.

But the seasoned star – previously known for his sex, drugs and rock-and-roll lifestyle – initially did not appear to remember much from the night before.
Liam said: “I woke up in the morning and I see this lump in the bed and I go ‘Oh, God, Who’s this?’
“Had a little tap on the f****** [back] and it was him.”
In a moment of sheer comedic genius, Steve who was “fully clothed” with stretched his arms out wide, tossed back the covers and yelled.
Liam recalled: “He’s gone, ‘AHAAA!’” – miming the popular catchphrase and gesture of Steve’s character Alan Partridge.
He added: “I haven’t seen him since. That was it. Seriously I haven’t f***ing seen him since.”
