Kylies news comes after she was tipped to be performing a Glastonbury festival next year, for the first time in her career.

She was forced to pull out of a performance on the main stage 12 years ago, but cancelled after being diagnosed with breast cancer.

It has been reported she jumped at the chance to appear at the next festival – on the Legends time slot – with tickets selling out this morning

An insider told The Sun: Kylie had to pull out of Glastonbury in 2005 just a month before she was due to appear so this performance will be a very emotional and poignant moment for her.

Speaking about how much she would love the chance to perform, Ky previously explained: When I was supposed to do it I think I would have been the first solo female to headline in however many years it was, so I was really proud of that at that time. Obviously it didnt happen.

So yes, it would be amazing and very emotional to be standing there and doing what I didnt get to do all those years ago, for sure.
