Glasgow pop icon Lulu cried on stage at the Glastonbury festival.

The 75-year-old, who grew up in Dennistoun, took a moment to compose herself following a loud round of applause from the audience at the festival, which kicked off on Friday.

She performed from her back catalogue of hits, which included We’ve Got Tonight, originally a duet with Irish singer Ronan Keating, and Relight My Fire, which was her hit with pop group Take That.

Despite the Irish boy band and Keating not appearing with her, the crowd joined in singing, clapping and dancing along as Lulu strutted around.

She told the crowd: “I’m going to try and hold it together because I want to sing my a** off”, as she began her Glastonbury set on Friday at the Avalon stage.

The veteran singer asked the crowd whether they liked the Eurovision Song Contest before she performed Boom Bang-A-Bang, the track which made her joint winner of the competition in 1969.

Lulu also performed David Bowie’s song The Man Who Sold The World and said releasing a version helped her “start the process of reinventing” herself.

Before singing James Bond theme The Man With The Golden Gun, Lulu said she was “very happy to be a member of the 007 family”.

The legendary artist joins others such as Dua Lipa, Coldplay and Shania Twain at one of the biggest events in the musical calendar.
