Lily Allen to stay in yurt at Glastonbury

Lily Allen has hired a £7,000 yurt to stay in at the Glastonbury festival.

The 28-year-old singer is not prepared to rough it like other revellers in a tent and instead will be 'glamping' - glamorous camping - in the luxury portable dwelling with her husband Sam Cooper.

The expensive accommodation is a favourite for celebrities who decide to stay overnight at the three-day music event, and the quirky pods are furnished with comfortable double beds covered in Egyptian cotton sheets, sheep-skin rugs, sofas, a champagne fridge and lighting.

Lily is looking forward to letting her hair down for a few days as she checks out the bands and she and Sam is leaving her two daughters, 19-month-old Ethel, and six-month-old Marnie, at home.

She is also looking forward to a break from her gruelling exercise sessions at Barry's Bootcamp in London.

She wrote on Twitter: ''Jesus, bootcamp is no joke. Glad I don't have to go back till after Glastonbury.''

Lily a big fan of the festival and has been going for years, first of all with her dad Keith Allen, and the last time she attended in 2011 she stayed in a yurt in the VIP area.

She has performed at the event on a handful of occasions as well.

The 'Smile' singer is known for her wacky Glastonbury fancy dress costumes, which have included a mushroom outfit which she wore in 2007.

Her attendance has sparked rumours she could play a secret set at the festival which kicks off on Friday (28.06.13).
