NEWLY single Chris Martin shared a kiss with former fling Dua Lipa after cosying up to the pop beauty backstage at Glastonbury.
The Coldplay rocker has reset his sights on the One Kiss singer, I can reveal, after his 20-month relationship with Fifty Shades of Grey actress Dakota Johnson came to an end last month.

Chris spotted Dua, who recently split from her boyfriend, backstage at Glastonbury
Chris beelined for Dua — also single after splitting from her long-term boyfriend, model and chef Isaac Carew — when he spotted her backstage.
A source said: “As soon as Chris caught Dua’s eye, he was over like a shot — and he didn’t leave her side all night.
“She seemed happy to be in his company and even introduced him to her family.
“They were all talking together for ages but whenever Chris could get Dua all to himself he would be really flirty with her.

“There was clearly a lot of chemistry between them — and when they headed to the Guerilla bar in the Shangri-La area, he saw his moment and they shared a kiss.”
Last night Chris’ rep denied they had kissed and insisted they are just friends.
A spokesman for Chris said: “We would like to confirm that Chris Martin and Dua Lipa did not kiss at Glastonbury and are just friends. They were both in the same area of the festival with a larger group of friends.”
Clearly the Glastonbury water has something in it for these two, because it was at Worthy Farm exactly two years ago that they first hooked up.
I reported how the pair — who first met while collaborating on a song called Homesick, for Dua’s debut album — were caught snogging behind the VIP Winnebago area.
And while I had high hopes for pop’s new power couple, things soon fizzled out. Still, another year, another Glastonbury — and here they are again.

But while Chris seems keen to pick up where the pair left off in the summer of 2017, my sources say he might now have competition when it comes to winning Dua’s heart.
Over the last few weeks the singer has been on a string of dates with Anwar Hadid who, like his famous sisters Bella and Gigi, is a model.
The source added: “Chris is really keen on Dua but they are both having fun being newly free and single so neither know where the flirtation might end up.”
Just a wild guess — but my money is on Glastonbury 2020, behind a Winnebago.

Wise Janet drops mike
THANKS to that wardrobe malfunction in 2004, it’s hard to watch a Janet Jackson performance without fearing some kind of nip slip.
In the case of last night’s Glasto gig, fans were also poised to see if the star – who covered up in head-to-toe black – would hit a bad note when it came to her late brother Michael.
Janet Jackson was apparently ‘terrified’ her Glastonbury performance would be overshadowed
The Sun told this week how Janet was on the fence about including any hits from Jacko’s catalogue, fearing a backlash from the audience. And despite the ten-year anniversary of his death this week, there was no trace of his music in her set.
One source said: “Janet wanted to mark the occasion but was terrified her performance at Glastonbury, the first in eight years, would be overshadowed. She thought best play things safe.”
That comment could have also extended to her setlist, with half the tracks probably known only to her die-hard fans. Still, at least she kept all her assets under control.
Life’s so buzzy, Rupert
HARRY Potter star Rupert Grint is bumbling along just fine – after taking up beekeeping.
Speaking at Glasto’s EE area, he joked how he had thought about wearing his white netted work outfit to the festival so he could slip by undetected in the crowd.

He said: “I considered coming to Glastonbury in disguise, like I used to.
“I was going to bring my beekeeping outfit because I’m into beekeeping lately. It’s good for the environment.”
The showbuzz star, who is estimated to have raked in around £40million from playing lovable Ron Weasley in the Potter movie franchise, plans to make his new hobby a going concern.
He added: ‘I might be bringing my own honey out soon. I’ll be making honey and money.”
VANESSA Kirby is now besties with the woman who is replacing her in The Crown – Helena Bonham-Carter.
Vanessa won a Bafta last year for playing Princess Margaret.

But Helena takes over as the Queen’s sister in the third series of the hit Netflix show.
Speaking at Glastonbury, Vanessa said: “I had dinner with her the other day, it was all old and new cast, it was amazing.
“Helena and I were thick as thieves and gossiping and drinking all night. I love her.
“I feel there should be an alternative reality where the two Margarets meet and get p***ed and bitch about everything while being fabulous.” I’d definitely watch that.
Dropout Diplo not Worthy of an invite back
SOPHIE Turner and Joe Jonas vowed their wedding celebration yesterday would rival Glasto.
Not wrong. I’ve learned Glasto chiefs were miffed to learn Diplo pulled out of his Worthy Farm slot to DJ at the wedding in the South of France.
American DJ Diplo pulled out of his Glastonbury spot to attend Joe Jonas’ wedding
A source said: “In their eyes it’s unprofessional, when he was one of the first names announced. It is a bit of a no-no. He’s not likely to be invited back for a while.”
While the American DJ missed Glasto, one surprise caner at the festival was Sophie’s Game Of Thrones co-star Emilia Clarke.
My spies spotted Emilia – GoT’s Daenerys Targaryen, while Sophie played Sansa Stark – partying in electronic music zone Block9 until 4am on Friday with male pals.
When a fan asked why she was not at the wedding, she quipped: “I’m not a Stark!”
Sophie and Emilia didn’t film together until this year – when their characters’ frosty meeting sparked catty memes. Sounds like Emilia and Sophie are also a bit frosty with each other.
Shorts ‘n’ sweet, Carrie
CARRIE Underwood made shorts shrift of her gig on the Pyramid Stage – strutting around in denim cut-offs.
American Carrie told fans she was thrilled to be playing Glasto after her country idol Dolly Parton did the same in 2014.

She gushed: “It’s an honour to even be mentioned in the same breath as Dolly.”
Carrie also told how she had come prepared for some dodgy British weather and brought along wellies and a poncho. I imagine those are still in her suitcase.
Lewis has Noel down to a tee
LEWIS CAPALDI sends up his feud with Noel Gallagher by swaggering on stage wearing an Oasis-style parka coat, hat and shades – then revealing a heart T-shirt with Noel’s face on it.
Before he made his cheeky entrance on to the Other Stage, the audience had been treated to a video clip of Noel saying: “Who is this Capaldi fella?”

The pair’s war of words kicked off a few weeks ago when mouthy Noel asked in an interview who Lewis was then branded him “an idiot”.
As the row escalated, Noel’s warring brother Liam waded in on the action. When asked if he liked Lewis, he quipped: “I do now.”
But judging by Lewis’s performance yesterday, the feud is not holding him back one bit.
Proudly declaring himself “the Scottish Beyonce”, he belted out his mammoth No1 Someone You Loved and a string of other hits – and told the delighted crowd: “If you haven’t enjoyed it, keep it to your f***ing self”.
That won over everyone except, I imagine, the BBC censor checking for naughty language.
[boxout headline=”Liam’s tongue ‘n’ groove” intro=”LIAM GALLAGHER left his trusty parka at home because of the heat but did bring his trademark cheek to last night’s Pyramid Stage set – as he stuck out his tongue.”]As temperatures cooled, though, he moaned to the crowd: “Someone told me it was hot so I’ve got a parka sitting at home. Now I’m here freezing me tits off.”
He delivered a rousing set of OASIS hits and solo material – including Wall Of Glass, which got a huge reception.
He also paid tribute to the late Prodigy frontman Keith Flint with Oasis track Champagne Supernova. He said: “I love you to the moon and back.”
A hitch in time for Anne-Marie
ANNE-MARIE took to the Pyramid Stage in a white mini-dress and crazy Chanel earrings – but had to hitch up her frock at the front to avoid embarrassment.
Wearing white was brave because the Rockabye singer told the crowd she had been so nervous about her gig she had a NOSEBLEED the night before. Luckily she managed to avoid a repeat performance.

Her lack of shoulder straps was a bold move, too, and at one point during her lively set she had to check her boobs were still covered, inset.
Pal Ed Sheeran gave her set a little help as he appeared on a big screen just before Anne Marie sang her track Perfect To Me.
He also used the moment to announce all the things that are perfect to him – cats, curry and beer.
I imagine Ed’s new wife Cherry Seaborn might want just one addition to that list.

[boxout headline=”Celebrities caught out” intro=”THE LUMINEERS’ Friday set proved they still have the magic touch despite Neyla Pekarek quitting to go solo in October. Of her departure, Jeremiah Fraites said: “It hasn’t changed our dynamic at all.””]Billie Eillish had a message for critics of her edgy, goth-style music ahead of her first Glasto set today. She said: “They can relax. It’s a really dark time and I’m speaking about it and people can shut up.”
There was no slumming it for actress Sienna Miller when it came to her transport to Worthy Farm. The actress touched down in a helicopter.
Stormzy had some expert help for the headline-grabbing Union Jack stab vest he wore on the Pyramid Stage on Friday night – I hear it was designed by Banksy.
Miley Cyrus will invite dad Billy Ray to join her on stage when she performs tonight. Miley, who will also duet with Lil Nas, clearly wants to make the gig a family affair..
