La Roux's Elly Jackson duetted with Heaven 17's Glenn Gregory on Glastonbury's Other Stage today (June 25).

La Roux were joined by Gregory for a version of his band's 1983 hit 'Temptation', prompting loud approval from the heaving crowd.

Jackson started the set wearing a huge, multi-tiered jacket, and was joined by a troupe of female dancers for opener 'Tigerlily'. During 'I'm Not Your Toy', security men at the front of the stage threw hundreds of novelty balloons into the audience, which were subsequently thrown around for the remainder of her performance.

Jackson also performed a cover of The Rolling Stones' hit 'Under My Thumb'.

She also gave a shout out to her parents – her mother Trudie Goodwin played June Ackland in TV drama The Bill – who were in attendance.

"Can I please say hello to my mum and dad?" Jackson asked the crowd ahead of playing 'Finally My Saviour'. "They're sitting by the sound desk and they've never been to a festival before!"

The band ended their set by playing their two biggest hits, 'In For The Kill' and 'Bulletproof', with an energetic Jackson urging the crowd to get up and dance during the songs, after which she dedicated the entire set to her parents.

La Roux played:

'Tigerlily'
'I'm Not Your Toy'
'Quicksand'
'Finally My Saviour'
'Armour Love'
'Under My Thumb'
'Growing Pains'
'Temptation'
