Lily Allen gives away Glastonbury tickets to local kids

Lily Allen has revealed that she will give away her complimentary Glastonbury tickets to local kids.

The singer is due to perform at the Worthy Farm event this weekend and she has given given a big allocation of guest tickets as a result of her Pyramid Stage billing.

Instead of giving them to showbiz friends, however, Allen is due to give them out to kids in her local village.

She told BBC Radio 1: "I get a certain allocation and because I am on the Pyramid Stage you get more... My husband has been in charge of ticket allocation. I have quite a lot of blaggy friends who hit me up for stuff all the time and never really appreciate it.

"I have all the calls, 'Can we have some tickets?'. He has given them all to our villagers. There's, like, 25 kids from Cranham who have never been to Glastonbury and who are going have such a shock and all my showbiz mates are like 'Er?'."

Allen is due to perform at Glastonbury on Friday (June 27).
