A Liverpool bloke has taken the term “scouse humour” to the extreme by dressing up as a woman to get into Glastonbury Festival.

A video on Twitter has been doing the rounds shown the man with a heavy Liverpool accent donning a wig and a dress.

Posted by @LoriHartx on Twitter, the man – or woman…? – claimed to be standing in the queue at the famous music event waiting to get in, the Liverpool Echo reports.

The tweet said: “Day 1 of Glasto and a scouse lad came up to me in a wig and dress cos he had a woman’s ticket and I got interviewed by BBC news straight after getting in.”

The tweet went viral, but it is not known quite how he got the ticket given that they all have photos of the owners on this year as bosses try to stop ticket touts.

The video tweeted later revealed that she lost him in the queue, but another user – @Jcooper1996 – posted a photo of him to prove that he had got into the festival.

He wrote: “Scouse lad bought a 40 year old women's ticket and gone full drag.”

The “lad” was pictured sitting on the ground with a rainbow flag over his legs.

Whether the pair meet again is unknown, but Lori appeared to be enjoying herself, as she later posted a photo of herself with a bucket hair featuring the words” Tory Scum” written on it in the style of the Toy Story film logo.

The bloke with the big female hat might find it handy, however, after the Met Office issued an urgent weather warning to festival goers.

The annual music event kicked off yesterday in bright sunshine – much to the delight of revellers.

But the Met Office is warning that the four-day event at Worthy Farm in Shepton Mallet could end with a disastrous downpour.

Temperatures hit around 27c earlier today (June 23), but seasonal wet weather could see it go as low as 18c by the time the annual festival ends.

Met Office Chief Forecaster Paul Gundersen said: “Our advice would be to have raincoats at the ready for the rest of the festival.

“After a warm and, at times, sunny start to Thursday it will turn cloudier and there will be an increasing risk of thunderstorms through the afternoon and evening bringing a risk of torrential downpours.

“The exact location of the heaviest of these showers is still uncertain, but people can stay up to date with the latest forecast and warnings through our website or app.

“For Friday and the weekend, the weather will become cooler and more unsettled, and the risk of heavy showers and thunderstorms continues in the Glastonbury area, and although these should be quick moving, some surface water might accumulate at times from the heaviest showers.”

Glastonbury has been contacted for comment about the "female" festival punter.
