Kylie Minogue has been announced as the latest singer to perform at Glastonbury.

She will play the coveted tea-time slot on Sunday at the Festival - which has previously been filled by Dame Shirley Bassey, Dolly Parton and Lionel Richie.

The pop was forced to pull out of headlining the festival in 2004 to undergo treatment for breast cancer.

Kylie joins Stormzy - who will headline the Friday night - as the second act to be confirmed for the Festival.

The next Glastonbury Festival will be taking place from the 26th to the 30th of June 2019, festival organisers have confirmed.

The Festival of Contemporary Performing Arts will be held at the Worthy Farm, Pilton in Somerset.

The team confirmed in 2016 that they would be taking a fallow year next year, meaning the festival would not be happening in 2018, "in order to give the farm, the village and the Festival team the traditional year off".

A woman who was sexually assaulted in the run up to Glastonbury has thanked organisers for their sensitivity and kindness which meant she was able to attend - and enjoy - the festival.

The woman had asked for a refund but the team at Worthy Farm went out of their way to make sure she could attend the festival and was safe.

She has written a powerful open letter to say thank you, describing her whole experience.
