He beamed as he clutched a camera and watched as his girlfriend of over one year climbed into the blue and white helicopter.

Kylie too was also in good spirits, smiling away as she prepared to perform at the iconic festival for the very first time. 

The On A Night Like This singer admitted that she’ll be ‘in tears’ during her performance after she was forced to pull out the musical extravaganza in 2005 following her breast cancer diagnosis.

Kylie admitted that she thought she had ‘missed her opportunity’ at Glastonbury and that she would never return to the festival again after pulling out fourteen years ago following her devastating cancer diagnosis when she was aged just 36.

Speaking to the The Mirror, she said: ‘I would have been one of the only female solo artists in the festival’s history to headline. I really thought I missed my ­opportunity and, as the years went by, I said to myself, “Well this just isn’t going to happen”.’

Kylie, who celebrated ten years all-clear from breast cancer in 2015, added that she was ‘deeply affected’ by having to pull out of Glastonbury and watched the festival on TV with her parents in Melbourne, Australia, in 2005 amid her treatment. 

She said: ‘My memory’s so strong of so much around that time and while my focus had moved on from Glastonbury, I was watching and going, “I’m meant to be there”.

‘I will remember what happened those years ago and my ­overriding feeling will just be of gratitude and, how fragile life can be. Will there be tears? Absolutely. Let’s just say I will be wearing ­waterproof mascara!’

In May, Kylie spoke about her joy at performing at this year’s Glastonbury Festival during an interview on BBC Radio 2 with Zoe Ball.

She said: ‘I keep losing my breath. Everytime someone mentions Glastonbury I’m like, “Yup, that’s happening”.

‘It was 2005 and that was thrilling at that time that I was going to play Glastonbury. Then I received my diagnosis which put a halt to everything.

‘All these years have passed and I was thinking, “well I guess that’s never going to happen for me, I missed the boat on that.” Then bang, I was offered the Legends slot which is incredibly exciting to me.’

Kylie will perform with the likes of Stomzy, Janet Jackson, The Killers, Miley Cyrus and The Cure at the star-studded occasion.

Glastonbury’s line-up is made up of 42 per cent female artists, and the event have aimed to make sure there is as close to a 50/50 gender-balanced bill as possible.

Festival organiser Emily Eavis, who curates the line-up with her father Michael Eavis, said previously: ‘The gender balance is something I consider at every stage of the booking process.

‘We’re a little way off being 50/50 across the whole festival, but in 2017 the Park Stage was 50/50 and that will be the case on other stages this year. We’re definitely moving in the right direction.’

Glastonbury is located at Worthy Farm in Somerset, South West England, it kicked off on June 26 and will conclude on June 30.
