Foo Fighters fans are begging the band to put them out of their misery as speculation mounts about them performing at Glastonbury.

Dave Grohl and co are not officially on the bill for the Somerset festival - but a mystery band called The ChurnUps is listed for a prime-time slot on the main Pyramid Stage.

Fans have been trying to guess who they really are, with Blur and Pulp both among the acts being mentioned.

But Grohl dropped a major hint when he posted a message on Instagram about the band and their fans “churning up” emotions together.

And things have now amped up as the SecretGlasto Twitter account posted: “We’ve got another confession to make, you’d certainly be FOOlish to miss The ChurnUps.”

Comedian and Glasto fan Josh Widdicombe added weight to the gossip when he suggested the Foo Fighters would play a set.

With just days to go until the event, music fans are desperate to solve the mystery.

“Please put us out of our Glastonbury misery Dave, is it you?!” one pleaded on Instagram.

“My year will actually be made if it is Foo Fighters secret set at Glasto,” said another.

“Honestly I don’t know how anybody is functioning let alone working,” one person wrote on Twitter.

“The excitement levels aren’t manageable here.”
