Kate Nash opened up today's (June 27) muddy Glastonbury with an early morning set on the Pyramid Stage.

Taking to the stage at 10.50am (BST), she performed tracks from her debut album 'Made Of Bricks'.

Dressed in a purple top and flowery skirt, Nash was joined by two blonde afro-wig-wearing girls in skeleton costumes for 'Skeleton Song'.

The songstress was in good spirits throughout the show, even getting up from her piano to twirl her skirt to cheers from the crowd.

Just before the end of the set, an elated Nash thanked the crowd for getting up so early to see her, saying: "It's been an honour to open the festival – I hope you have a good time."

Kate Nash played:

'Pumpkin Soup'
'Shit Song'
'We Get On'
'Birds'
'Don't You Want To Share The Guilt'
'Do Waa Do'
'Mouthwash'
'Mariella'
'Skeleton Song'
'Foundations'
'Merry Happy'
