Dolly Parton has signed up to play this year's Glastonbury Festival.

The country music star revealed the news on Twitter, where she has almost three million followers, saying: " I'm incredibly excited to FINALLY announce that the BlueSmokeWorldTour is coming to GlastoFest on June 29th! Stay tuned for more info."

It is not known if the 9 To 5 star will headline the Sunday night slot - the festival's finale - or whether she will play the main stage or one of the smaller stages.

Emily Eavis, whose father Michael founded the festival in 1970, said: " We are delighted to say that Dolly is coming to Glastonbury... It really doesn't get much better than this!"

The line-up for last year's f estival included the Rolling Stones, Arctic Monkeys and Strictly Come Dancing host Sir Bruce Forsyth.

Dolly's career has seen her rack up dozens of hits including Jolene and I Will Always Love You, which was also a huge hit for Whitney Houston, and star in films including Steel Magnolias.

She also set up Dollywood, a theme park in her native Tennessee, and runs a literacy campaign which gives free books to millions of children every year.
