Beady Eye has split up.

The rock band - consisting of Liam Gallagher, Gem Archer, Andy Bell, Chris Sharrock and Jay Mehler - have announced they've gone their separate ways after forming five years ago.

Taking to his Twitter account today (25.10.14), Liam broke the news to his fans by tweeting: ''Beady Eye are no longer. Thanks for all your support. LGx (sic).''

However, the group are yet to reveal why they've chosen to part ways, with many fans suggesting that they may have split to reform their former band Oasis, which also included Liam's brother Noel Gallagher.

One fan, Conor McMyler, wrote on Twitter after the news was announced: ''@liamgallagher DOES THIS MEAN OASIS RE-UNION PLS PLS PLS (sic).''

Ant McKay tweeted: ''@liamgallagher does that mean oasis are coming back again? (sic).''

While other fans expressed their sadness and disbelief about the news by simply tweeting, ''What?'' and ''No!''

Beady Eye formed in 2009 after Liam, Gem, Andy and Chris decided they still wanted to make music together following the split of Oasis earlier that year when Noel acrimoniously quit the group in August 2009.

Since their formation, Beady Eye have released two albums, 'Different Gear, Still Speeding' and 'BE', which have both reached the top 5 in the UK Album Chart.

However, earlier this year, the band also split from their manager Scott Rodger.
