BBC viewers were confused as Dua Lipa took to the stage tonight.

The One Kiss hitmaker headlined the Pyramid Stage on Friday night at Worthy Farm. The 28-year-old arrived on the stage at just after 10pm to a huge ovation from the thousands in attendance at the Somerset Festival.

Dua started off her performance in style as she opened with hit single Training Season before she moved into One Kiss. Fans took to social media platform X to praise the singer as she looked at home in the headline slot on the Pyramid stage.

However, other viewers were confused as they questioned why Dua's performance wasn't being broadcast live on BBC One. Fans were able to watch Dua's performance live but needed to access this via the iPlayer as her performance got underway on BBC One 30 minutes later at 10.30pm.

Some viewers took to the social media platform to share their confusion as the pop star took to the stage. @theproperkp said: "So why is the #Glastonbury headliner not live on the actual tv, but tucked away on the iPlayer??"

Jim added: "So let me get this straight... You can watch Dua Lipa live on iPlayer...and on catch-up later on BBC1?"

Amy commented: "Why do BBC show the Glastonbury headliners 30 minutes later than BBC iPlayer? Have they not heard of the joys of live tweeting? What happened to community?"
