Glastonbury: Wayne and Coleen Rooney cause a splash

By Tom Morgan

Glastonbury’s waterlogged pitch failed to stop play as one of England's top footballers and his wife joined the party.

Smiling Wayne and Coleen Rooney sparked a media frenzy as they strode towards the Pyramid Stage for the start of blues legend BB King's set yesterday.

Despite the rain and dark clouds, Rooney wore sunglasses as the couple walked arm-in-arm wearing matching boots.

Rooney, who had his hood up after recently having a hair transplant, was seemingly in good spirits after returning from a break in Barbados to travel to Somerset.

Unlike the majority of the crowd, forced to rough it in muddy tents, the 25-year-olds were believed to be receiving VIP treatment after booking a top-of-the range motorhome.

Revellers got a reprieve from the rain as Moroccan act Master Musicians of Jouhouka and rapper Chipmunk kicked things off.

But the showers came back with a vengeance before the likes of rappers Wu-Tang Clan came on stage.

Marc Argent (32) from Street, Somerset, was one of hundreds gathered around the Pyramid to perform a welly stomp dance in the quagmire. He said: “It's great to see it all under way. It's muddy but it is still magical.”
