Glastonbury organiser Emily Eavis has responded to Richard Ashcroft's claim that her father, Michael, was against The Verve headlining the festival.

Towards the end of the band's set on Sunday evening, Ashcroft said he hoped the band had proved Mr Eavis wrong, adding: “I think he was a bit worried we wouldn't be as good as Keane or something."

Speaking to the BBC, Emily Eavis said that Ashcroft's comments were “not true at all" and were “not a big deal.”

"We've liked The Verve for ages and we were really pleased to have them on," she added.

The Verve ended their set on Sunday with new song, 'Love Is Noise', which is to be the first single from their forthcoming album, 'Forth'.

The band, who reunited in 2007, last released an full studio project in 1997.
