Billie Eilish thanked festival-goers for “not leaving” after making her Glastonbury debut.

The 17-year-old singer performed on the Other Stage on Sunday, treating the crowd to a string of tracks such as Bad Guy, You Should See Me In A Crown and Copycat.

As her set neared the end, Eilish said she had been looking “angry as f***” as a result of some technical issues, although she did not elaborate.

“It doesn’t matter,” she went on.

“I’m here for you guys and none of this matters, it’s just me and you and I love you.

“Thank you for bearing with me, I really appreciate it.

“Thank you for not leaving. I know you could have.”

Eilish recalled her first big show in the UK, where she performed for 200 people.

“I thought it was the most amazing thing and now it’s like the whole world is looking at me right now, and it’s incredible,” she said.

“So thank you for making this happen and thank you for believing in me.”
