Dolly Parton has announced plans to re-marry her husband Carl Dean on the 50th anniversary of their wedding.

The pair tied the knot in 1966, and now the country singer has said that they'll be renewing their vows in 2016. Speaking to Closer Weekly, the star mentioned plans for renewing their vows in two years time: "We've talked about that — we might do it all over again!" she said. "Another big wedding." She added that the event will "probably be at our big old plantation home. We love it there."

Meanwhile, Dolly Parton is strongly rumoured to be playing Glastonbury Festival 2014. The country music icon will reportedly be making her Worthy Farm debut next June, according to The Sun, and will take the Sunday night 'legends' slot, on June 29, 2014. The supposed date would fit in perfectly with her 2014 UK tour, which sees Parton playing London's O2 Arena on June 27, but leaves her with an open schedule until her Nottingham Arena tour on July 2. Arcade Fire and Lily Allen have already confirmed themselves for the festival.

Parton's 'Blue Smoke World Tour' visits the UK for 13 shows, starting on June 8 next year in Liverpool. Scroll down to see the full list of UK dates and ticket details.
