Lennon Gallagher and his sister Molly Moorish looked on good form as they arrived at the Brit Awards at The O2 Arena in London on Tuesday.
Liam Gallagher’s son, 22, looked the spitting image of his father as he cut a dapper display in a grey jacket which he layered above a black top and trousers.
The daughter of singer Lisa Moorish, 23, cut a trendy figure in a black black maxi dress beneath a matching leather jacket, as the pair ensured to support their dad, 49, who is performing.

It follows reports that Liam is set to bring rock and roll back to the BRIT Awards as he will take to the stage at the upcoming ceremony.
The awards show, which is usually more pop-focused, will welcome the Wonderwall hitmaker who recently announced his new single, Everything’s Electric.
Speaking about Liam’s appearance, a source told The Sun: ‘Brits bosses are thrilled to have got Liam on board as a true rock’n’roll legend.
‘But they will be on the edge of their seats on the night because he is notoriously unpredictable so anything could happen.

‘Getting him on board as well as Ed and other big names is a real coup. There are other acts who are still in talks to perform and bosses want to keep some surprises back for now.’
MailOnline contacted representatives for Liam and Ed for comment at the time.
It’s set to be a big night for British music, with Adele and Ed Sheeran leading the 2022 BRIT Awards nominations, with an impressive four nods each.
Joining Adele and Ed with four nominations are Little Simz and Dave, who along with Sam Fender, will battle it out for the inaugural Artist of the Year award at the ceremony which airs at 8pm on ITV and will be hosted by Mo Gilligan for the first time.

The ceremony, in association with Mastercard, sees the most female artists nominated in over a decade, however, they are still outnumbered three to two by male nominees.
It comes after The Brit Awards sparked controversy after scrapping male and female categories and switching to gender-neutral gongs for the first time in its history, causing naysayers to brand the event ‘woke’.
Sam Fender, Central Cee, David Guetta are up for three awards on the night, while Doja Cat, Olivia Rodrigo, Billie Eilish, Lil Nas X are each nominated for two prizes and will go up against Taylor Swift for International Artist of the Year award.

Elsewhere, there are plenty of artist who’ve been double nominated for the 2022 ceremony including Becky Hill, Coldplay, Dua Lipa, Glass Animals, Griff, Joel Corry, Joy Crookes and KSI.
While Little Mix, Måneskin, Raye, Tom Grennan and Wolf Alice are also recognised twice.
Little Mix’s nomination comes weeks after the girls decided to take an extended break to concentrate on solo efforts, with their nods being the first time they’ve been nominated as a trio since Jesy Nelson quit last December.

They’ll be hoping to emulate their success from last year, where they won Best Group for the first time and also became the first ever female group to do so.
Other artists hoping to win big on the night include ABBA, AJ Tracey, Anne-Marie, Drake, Elton John, Ghetts, London Grammar and The Weeknd.
Organisers divided opinion last year with some outraged by the decision to switch to gender-neutral gongs for the first time in its history.
Bosses claimed the move was in a bid ‘to be as inclusive and as relevant as possible’ and allowed people to enter who do not identify as a man or woman.

But fans blasted the change as ‘woke drivel’, with many calling for a boycott of next year’s show.
The Brit Awards 2022 will see contenders battle for artist of the year instead of male solo artist and female solo artist. Best international artist of the year will be used in replace of best international female, or male solo artist.
Meanwhile, the song of the year prize will recognise the featured artists, rather than just the lead artists or named collaborators.
The 2022 ceremony will also feature four new awards, alternative/rock act; hip hop/grime/rap act; dance act and pop/R’n’B act.

These four new genre awards were up for a public vote on the Tik Tok app, as for the first time in the ceremony’s 45-year history, fans got to decide the outcome. The vote closed at 6pm GMT Thursday February 3, with users able to cast up to ten votes per category, per day.
The changes come after singer Sam Smith – who identifies as non-binary – put organisers under pressure to scrap male and female categories earlier this year.
Wednesday’s ceremony will see Ed Sheeran, Liam, Adele, Dave, Little Simz, and this year’s Rising Star award winner, Holly Humberstone, take to the stage for performances.

Doja Cat had also been on the lineup, but was forced to pull out after several members of her crew tested positive for Covid.
She tweeted last week: ‘Unfortunately, due to cases of COVID within my crew, I will no longer be performing at the Brits. ‘It’s simply not safe for us to continue to rehearse together and put each other in harm’s way. I can’t wait to perform for my UK fans as soon as I can. Take care of yourselves.’
The rap star – who received nods for International Artist Of The Year and Best International Song for her SZA collaboration Kiss Me More – herself tested positive for the virus in December.
The Brit Awards 2022 will air on ITV at 8PM live from the 02 Arena in London.
