Fans of the Foo Fighters were devastated when the band announced that they would be pulling out of this weekend’s Glastonbury festival but Florence + The Machine made sure to fill the gap with one of the band’s most popular tunes.

Florence Welch took to the stage last night to perform her set but the band happily did a cover of ‘Times Like These’ for the Foo Fighters fans in the crowd.

The Foo Fighters were forced to cancel their appearance at the UK festival after front man Dave Grohl broke his leg.

Grohl injured himself when he fell of stage in Sweden earlier this month, dislocating his ankle and breaking his fibula.

 

Meanwhile, a host of celebrities have touched down at Glastonbury including Poppl Delevingne, Rio Ferdinand and James Corden.

James Corden and his wife arrived at the festival to celebrate his recent OBE award.

"I'm looking forward to seeing Jessie Ware. I think Kanye will be great,” he said.

Other celebrity Glasto-revellers included Jonathon Ross, Charlotte Church and Prince Harry’s ex-girlfriend Cressida Bonas.

Meanwhile, Kim Kardashian has hinted that she might be attending the festival to see her husband Kanye West take to Glastonbury’s main stage this weekend.

The pregnant keeping Up with the Kardashians star tweeted on Friday that she has "landed in London town".

Also expected to attend the festival is the Dalai Lama.

The exiled Tibetan spiritual leader will speak on Sunday where he will promote his message of "compassion, non-violence and the oneness of humanity," his representatives said.
