Despite the record-breaking singer’s famous reluctance to play festivals, Glastonbury organiser Eavis revealed that she’d been asked all the same: "She knows that we want her anyway, but she doesn't want to do a thing our size. Going on the Pyramid Stage is a bit daunting in front of 80,000 people, it's a bit much really.”

That’s not to say that she’s totally averse to Glastonbury, as Eavis added: "She comes every year usually, and has her own little party."

Speaking to the Daily Record last year about festivals, Adele said: "I can't do them. They make me nervous. I am crippled by stage fright. It gets worse the more I've been doing things."

She continued: "I think I would have a heart attack if I did a festival. The thought of that many people coming to see me or nobody coming to see me would make me shit myself.”

Elsewhere in the Metro interview, Eavis claimed that other headliners for next year had already been booked and were “ready to announce” but declined to do so.

Rumours include Paul McCartney, The Rolling Stones, Radiohead, Arctic Monkeys, Florence & The Machine and Kasabian.

Glastonbury 2013 registration is open now, and returns from 26-30 June at Worthy Farm, Pilton.
