Cliff Richard says he won't be "cheap" if Glastonbury Festival want him to play.

The 76-year-old music legend recently said it would be "great" to perform at the annual music extravaganza, which takes place on Worthy Farm in Somerset, South West England, but he's now said he'd only be up for doing it for a large sum of money.

Speaking on UK TV show 'Lorraine', he said: "They have never asked me - if they asked I'd seriously think about it. Maybe there will be a spot. If you are the owners of Glastonbury Festival, please feel free to ask but I may not be available and what's more, I'm not cheap!"

Speaking about the potential gig, the 'Devil Woman' hitmaker, who is set to perform a series of outdoor concerts next year, previously said: "They are like festival shows; open air concerts.

"We're doing two in Denmark, one in Ireland and nine in Britain.

"If they invited me to Glastonbury I would seriously think about doing it. Then I'd either plan a tour to start there or end there. It would be great."

However, the 'Summer Holiday' actor has revealed he wouldn't want to camp because he doesn't like to get dirty and covered in mud.

He explained: "Camping's not for me. I'm too old for that - I wouldn't want to get dirty."

But the veteran musician has admitted he has "admiration" for all of the concert-goers who embrace the weather conditions and the lack of showers and washing facilities to watch the acts regardless of who is performing.

He said: "I have admiration for all those folk that go. Apparently there have only been seven years when it didn't rain.

"They seem to have great fun all sloshing about in the mud. It doesn't even matter what bands are there - although they love their bands - it could be anybody playing.

"They're just there having a good time. It's wonderful to see."
