Glastonbury fans asked The Streets' Mike Skinner to 'stop' as they watched the hip hop and garage project on Saturday night. Led by vocalist Mike, The Streets hit the Other Stage and performed hits from their six studio albums.

Toward the end of the set, The Streets frontman spoke to the crowd in a bid to get some synchronised flag-waving going. He even ended up jumping over the fence so he could reach a flag in the audience so he could start it off.

However, those watching at home couldn't help but notice Mike's pleas to follow his instructions about the flags lasted for much of the final song of the set.

Speaking on X, formerly Twitter, @wbarenno wrote: "Mike Skinner stop going on about the bloody flags" while @davejmcn said: "Mike Skinner loves a flag". @emhazard also asked the question: "Why is Mike Skinner so obsessed with flags?!". @mark_wardy76 had a solution, writing: "Mike Skinner, just get to that flag pal!!!" as @janinesarah added: "Mike Skinner is determined to get this synchronised flag waving right isn't he."

However apart from the flag waving, many of those watching at home failed to find fault with The Streets' set - hailing it as the best set of the weekend.

The Streets came to recognition with their debut album Original Pirate Material back in 2002. The album has since gone on to be named in numerous ‘best album’ lists by publications including NME, The Observer and Rolling Stone.

Second album A Grand Don't Come for Free, released in 2004, went straight to number one and continued to see Mike's popularity boom following the success of hits like Dry Your Eyes and Fit But You Know It. The 2006 follow-up The Hardest Way to Make an Easy Living was also a number one album.

Dua Lipa, Coldplay and SZA are the headliners of the world-famous Pyramid Stage over the weekend while Shania Twain will take the Legends Slot. The full list of performers is huge - but you can also expect to see the likes of Avril Lavigne, Cyndi Lauper, The Last Dinner Party and Camila Cabello.

Glastonbury was founded by Sir Michael Eavis on his Somerset farm in 1970. While he is still involved, his daughter Emily and her husband Nick Dewey now take on the majority of the organisation.

The BBC's coverage of Glastonbury will be available across iPlayer, BBC Sounds, TV, radio and online, including its non-stop Classic Glastonbury channel streaming 24 hours a day from now until Sunday, June 30.
