Snoop Dogg is being targeted by Glastonbury organisers to headline this year's 40th anniversary festival.

Michael Eavis confirmed to The Sun his daughter Emily, who co-organises the festival and booked Jay-Z in 2008, has her sights set on the hip-hop star, who has just been allowed to apply for a UK visa again following a four-year ban.

Michael said: "She's a bright girl and she is very keen on Snoop Dogg doing the show, so we want him."

He added: "Her real claim to fame is booking Jay-Z. She came up with the idea, so I phoned his manager. At the end of a 40-minute chat he said Jay-Z would do the show, and the rest is history."
