Nick Grimshaw and Alexa Chung recreated Dolly Parton's Glastonbury set backstage at the festival for Sam Smith, who missed out on her performance

Nick Grimshaw and Alexa Chung recreated Dolly Parton's Glastonbury set backstage at the festival.

The Radio 1 Breakfast Show DJ and model friend were partying in the Beats by Dre VIP area at the event at Worthy Farm in South East England at the weekend.

The pair acted out Dolly's gig for singer Sam Smith who missed it because he was performing at the same time on The Other Stage on Sunday (29.06.14) and also joined Disclosure in the evening for a rendition of their track 'Latch'.

A source told BANG Showbiz: "Nick and Alexa were having a great time backstage and performed Dolly's hits '9 to 5' and 'Jolene', along with an accompanied dance routine for Sam, who was disappointed he'd missed Dolly perform."

The celebrity friends played the songs on Beats Pill XL speakers and the likes of Eliza Doolittle, Laura Whitmore and Foxes were also spotted backstage.

Sam said: "It's been absolutely amazing but I've not seen that many people play, I was performing while Dolly was playing. It would have been great to go and watch her sing."

Nick, who got a private jet to the site in Pilton, also held an impromtu party in the VIP tent when the rain started to pour on Saturday (28.06.14) and friend Rita Ora almost missed her helicopter out of the festival.
