The 83-year-old Greek pop legend has released over 200 albums over the course of her career in multiple languages and she thinks she has the back catalogue to follow in the footsteps of the likes of Lionel Richie, Barry Gibb and Dolly Parton by playing the world famous festival's Sunday afternoon spot for icons when it returns to Worthy Farm in Somerset, South West England, next year.

Speaking to BANG Showbiz, she said: "Of course I'm interested in playing Glastonbury, absolutely! I hope they get in touch and talk about it. I would love to come back to the UK and do it, I hope I do it. If it is offered I will be there."

The 'White Rose of Athens' singer stopped performing back in 2008 after five decades in the music business, however, her self-imposed retirement didn't last because not singing on stage made her depressed.

Since she started performing again, Nana has never been happier.

She said: "I tried to get away from singing one time but I couldn't do it, I've been singing since I was very young and I when I stopped I realised that one makes their road in life and, for me, this is it. Singing is my happiness, and helps me forget about all about the problems in life. I was very involved in singing all my life and I was going from one place to the other and sometimes you forget who you are and why you are there ... It wasn't a nervous breakdown but it was a sadness in my life, I was lonesome, I didn't think life was worth living, I didn't go out, I lost my feeling for anything. I realised when I sing I feel good about my soul, I was happy and I had a balance in my life and I felt more optimistic."
