After doing nothing to dispel rumours he’s bagged a slot at Glastonbury, Paddy Power make the Prince of pop a skinny 1/3 to be announced as the Sunday night headliner down on Worthy Farm.

Elsewhere, the bookmaker makes Kasabian 6/1 second favourites after the Leicester rockers were reportedly left fuming last year after they failed to make the cut, while it’s 9/1 for the Red Hot Chili Peppers and 10/1 for Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter, AKA Daft Punk, to get lucky and get the nod.

Should Prince get the yes, Paddy Power is offering 11/10 for Rita Ora, who performed on the Pyramid Stage last year and has since laid down some tracks with the big man, to make a guest appearance with the star.

Meanwhile talking Purple Rain, while Somerset-on-sea is currently three feet underwater, the bookmaker makes it a depressing 20/1 for the festival to be called off due to rain or flooding, or for the ‘glass half full’ types there’s a cheery 12/1 available for the hottest day of the year to occur during the festival.

A Paddy Power spokesman said: “Eavis has made it crystal clear he thinks Prince is one of the biggest acts in the world and having never graced Worthy Farm, it’s not surprise the odds are as skimpy 1/3”.
