With his hilarious approach to internet trolls and the ability to send himself up, James Blunt has long been the master of Twitter - and now he’s struck again.
MORE GLASTONBURY NEWS:
The ‘You’re Beautiful’ singer hilariously announced that he had been lined up to replace Foo Fighters at Glastonbury, after the rock band were forced to pull out due to frontman Dave Grohl’s broken leg.
Making light of the search to find a new act to play the Pyramid Stage on Friday night of next week’s festival, he tweeted: “Amazed and thrilled to get the call from @GlastoFest to headline in place of @foofighters. Of course I said yes! #rockon.”
Despite being known for his sarcasm, some of James’ 1.9 million followers actually fell for the prank:

@JamesBlunt great but maybe show the Foos some consideration and remorse?— Katie Clarke (@kcatclarke) June 17, 2015
Thankfully, others got the joke:
