The TV stars of the 1970s - who kept Wimbledon Common clean in the kids TV show and stormed the charts with a string of top 10 hits including Remember You're A Womble - are keen to wow crowds at the music event this summer, according to The Sun.

Mike Batt wrote the music for the group, which split in 1976.

The Wombles were led by Great Uncle Bulgaria and included Orinoco, Bungo and Stepney. They lives in a burrow under the Common and came out to gather and recycle rubbish that people left behind.

If they join the Glastonbury line-up, they will follow in the footsteps of veteran acts such as Rolf Harris and Dame Shirley Bassey.
