At the start of 2023, a new series of Dancing on Ice got underway and one of the starts asked to take on the frozen challenge was Mollie Gallagher. Although she had been on our TV screens for several years before then, having been cast as Nina Lucas in Coronation Street in 2019, not long after graduating from the Academy of Live and Recorded Arts in London, not everyone watches Corrie and therefore might not have heard of her until she appeared on the talent show. When she did, the first question that many people asked was whether she was related to Liam Gallagher, the former Oasis lead singer.
Who Are We Talking About?
Whilst it is extremely unlikely that you won’t have heard of Liam Gallagher, especially if you’re over the age of 30 or know a lot about the British music scene, it is entirely possible that Mollie Gallagher might have escaped your attention. Anyone who watches the soaps or is attuned to popular culture might well recognise her, but anyone who doesn’t fit into that bracket would be forgiven for not being sure who she is. As a result, we’ll take a quick look at the pair of them:
William John Paul Gallagher was born on the 21st of September, 1972 and is more commonly known simply as Liam Gallagher. He shot to game in the 1990s when he and his brother Noel, along with other members of their band, released the album Definitely Maybe as the group Oasis. It was a critical and commercial success, with Liam acting as the lead singer and front man of the group. More albums followed, with Oasis being one of the biggest groups in the world for a time. The two brothers had a fiery relationship, eventually leading to the group disbanding and Liam releasing songs with a new group called Beady Eye.

Mollie Elizabeth Gallagher
Born in Swinton, Salford on the 11th of December, 1997, Mollie Gallagher studied drama at a Manchester college before going to study at the Academy of Live and Recorded Arts. Not long after graduating, Gallagher was cast in the ITV soap opera Coronation Street in the role of Nina Lucas, the long-lost niece of Roy Cropper, an already established character. She became a series regular and in the January of 2023 she began competing in Dancing on Ice’s 15th series. She was partnered with Sylvain Longchambon and was eventually eliminated in seventh place, with Nile Wilson being crowned as the eventual winner.
Are They Related?
They two are not related, though it is easy to see why some people might be inclined to ask the question. Firstly, Mollie Gallagher is from near Manchester, stating in a soap based in the city, whilst Liam Gallagher is one of the most famous Mancunians around. There is also the fact that the pair share a last name. There is a reason why people haven’t asked if she’s related to Liam’s brother Noel, however, who is also both a Mancunian and called Gallagher. The reason is that Liam does have a daughter called Molly. You might well have noticed, though, that she spells her name differently. She was also born a year later than Mollie.
