Meanwhile, it seems likely that Ringo's former bandmate Paul McCartney could be set to headline Glastonbury 2020.

The Hey Jude legend was asked about the famous Somerset festival by the BBC and teased: "People are saying that it would be good if I did it, so I’m starting to think about whether I can or whether it would be a good thing.

“My kids are saying ‘Dad we’ve got to talk about Glastonbury’ and I think I know what they mean.

“It’s starting to become some remote kind of possibility. It’s definitely not fixed yet but people are starting to talk about it."

It came after Glastonbury organiser Michael Eavis appeared to let slip that he’d already lined up the Beatle to perform at the 50th anniversary festival.

Speaking to BBC Somerset, Eavis said: “Paul’s on good form at the moment.”

Asked by the reporter if he meant that McCartney would be heading to the festival, Eavis said “Hopefully for the 50th.”

But he warned: “Don’t make a big thing of it will you?”

Watch Ringo Starr join Macca on stage for a rendition of Get Back with The Rolling Stones' Ronnie Wood:
