Fern Britton complaint over Elton John Glastonbury performance

Taking to Twitter, Fern stated that she was struggling to see Elton due to “arty drone shots”. She wrote: “Stop with the arty drone shots Glastonbury director!!!! I want to see Elton and the stage!”

A second person added: “I said just the same! Let us see what the crowd are seeing, please!”

And a third said: “100% this! ‘Here’s what it’s like behind 100,000 people’… err no thank you!”

Another tweeted: “Feeling sea sick!”

However, it looks like Fern ended up still having a good time as another user told her: “Watch the lady doing sign language for Elton on iplayer. She is amazing,” leading to Fern replying: “I’m too busy dancing at the moment.”

Explaining that the issue may have been resolved, a Twitter user then told Fern: “Think they heard you!”

Another also added: “You did see Elton and the stage. The shots of Glastonbury were incredible. Never ignore a sunset, the crest of the moon, and the incredible crowd of people. Well done BBC.”
