After weeks of speculation, she made the surprise announcement during a gig at the O2 Arena in London on Friday night (18 March).

She said to fans: "Who's going to Glastonbury this year? See you there. I'll be there. I'll be headlining on the Saturday night this year.

"I wanted to do it last year but my record wasn't ready."

Feisty Adele also added: "And to the people who say I am too boring to headline, you're more f**king boring for moaning about me headlining."

Adele boring? Nope!

Adele begins her world tour at The SSE Arena in Belfast, Northern Ireland - 29 February 2016.

The London-born songwriter is the third and final headliner to be announced for the 2016 festival in Pilton Somerset, which will take place the last weekend in June.

The 'When We Were Young' star will perform at the Pyramid Stage on Saturday (25 June), and those not lucky enough to have a ticket can watch the performance on the BBC (not the same, though, is it?).

Coldplay are scheduled for Friday (24 June), while Muse are set to play on Sunday (26 June).

Wow, what a line-up.

Organiser Emily Eavis recently said: "We love Adele. She's an incredible artist and brilliantly honest and funny and real and that's what everybody loves about her.

"She's a great example because she doesn't put up any pretence."

Adele first played Glastonbury in 2007 at the beginning of her career, when the likes of Arctic Monkeys were headlining.

She has previously admitted she would "s**t herself" headlining the Worthy Farm festival because of the huge crowds...
