A couple have appeared to find the first Glastonbury 2023 tickets in a Tony's Chocolonely bar.

The festival joined forces with the chocolate brand for the Willy Wonka-inspired competition, which placed special limited edition chocolate bars in Oxfam stores across the country.

Now, it looks like two wannabe festival-goers have become the first to win a coveted prize, sharing the moment they opened their chocolate to find they had indeed got a golden ticket.

In the video, uploaded by Jovi Bunce, a woman can be seen kissing the chocolate bar for good luck, before opening to reveal what was inside.

The man behind the camera then jumps up and screams "no way" and does a lap in his living room before showing that wrapper which revealed they'd won tickets to the festival.
