Dolly Parton - Sam Smith loved seeing mud splattered bodies at Glastonbury

Sam Smith's favourite thing about Glastonbury is ''mud on sexy bodies''.

The 'Stay With Me' singer performed on The Other Stage on Sunday (29.06.14) and also joined Disclosure in the evening for a rendition of their track 'Latch'.

Sam spent Saturday (28.06.14) taking in the atmosphere of the festival held on Worthy Farm in Somerset, South West England, and he loved seeing lots of revellers getting stuck into the mud.

Speaking backstage on Sunday, he told BANG Showbiz: ''What do I love about Glastonbury? Mud on sexy bodies! I've been good though, I'm only just having my first drink and I got here yesterday morning.''

Sam did suffer some disappointment at Glastonbury though as he couldn't go and watch Dolly Parton's performance on the Pyramid Stage because it clashed with his own show.

He said: ''It's been absolutely amazing but I've not seen that many people play, I was performing while Dolly was playing. It would have been great to go and watch her sing.''

Ellie Goulding watched Dolly's set on a big screen in the hospitality tent and admitted she'd be delighted if she can have a career that lasts as long as Dolly's.

Ellie said: ''I'd love to be able to perform live for as long as Dolly. She's amazing!''

Dolly's performance drew one of the biggest crowds of the weekend and her set included several of her greatest hits, including 'Islands in the Stream', '9 to 5' and 'Jolene'.

The 68-year-old country legend was also joined on stage by Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora for 'Lay Your Hands On Me'.
