All is not lost! Yorkshire grit saves Glastonbury as it’s confirmed that Alex Turner and the rest of the Arctic Monkeys will be performing at the festival this weekend.

The band issued a statement about the illness, writing: “Alex is suffering from acute laryngitis and, following medical advice, has been ordered to rest.”

Speaking on BBC Radio 2 Breakfast Show Emily Eavis confirmed the news to presenter Zoe Ball saying: “They’re on, they’re on”

She continued: “It was a little bit close for a minute… thankfully they’re on”
