A reformed ABBA are the latest rumour for Glastonbury today (January 4).

Following singer Agnetha Faltskog's comments last week that she would consider a reunion, speculation was rife that the band could reform for the Royal Wedding in April.

However, today bookmakers William Hill are offering odds of 33/1 that the group instead play Glastonbury, and a reunion is now at the same odds that Robbie Williams was to rejoin Take That – who are another rumour for a slot for the festival – last January.

U2, Prince, Coldplay, Radiohead, Pulp and Bon Jovi are among other big names mooted for this year's event, which takes place on 22 – 26 June at Worthy Farm, Pilton.

Tickets are currently sold out but a small number of resale tickets are expected to be released in April. Full details about the ticket sale will be available on Virtual Festivals nearer the time.
