The pair will be interviewing brilliant acts, going backstage and generally having a ball. 'It's my first time to "T" and I've been told it's a right of passage for all Scots' Angela tells us. 'As a crowd they really go for it, which I love. I'm Irish and we tend to be similar so I think I'll feel right at home! I can't wait to see Years & Years, Hozier, Sam Smith, Paloma Faith as I adore her and interviewed her while working on The Voice, and Noel Gallager, because he's bloody hilarious'.

We caught up with Angela before she headed off to get all the info on her festival life...

What's your best ever festival moment?

Getting married to three of my best pals in a haze of glitter and tulle, the congregation sang Dolly Parton's 9-5 as we twirled down the aisle!

Who would be your dream festival duet?

Lauren Hill and The Smiths - what a delicious little fusion that would be. 

Festival fashion? Discuss. 

We do not live in LA, this is not Coachella! I find it mildly hilarious that festivals have turned into a major fashion events, it seems completely bizarre, but I get it. I swing between extreme practicality, and absolute extravagance. It shouldn't be about wearing the coolest outfit, in the ideal world people would wear gear to festivals that in real life would lead to them being sectioned. 

What is your one festival essential?

A comb, I'm basically a seventy six year old man. 

And your festival Emoji spirit animal?

The Octopus! Stay with me... It's got lots of legs so I won't tire running about, it's good in water so rain will not be an issue, it's wipe clean and it's got no skeleton at all so can squeeze into tight spaces. I think that's enough reasons, don't you?

Camping Vs. Glamping? 

Glamping all the way, and I'm not even apologetic. Perhaps I would power on in a sweaty tent if I didn't have to work but tent head (it's WAY worse than bed head) is not the look for TV. 

Finally your tip to survive a festival? 

Wear layers. You need to shed layers like an onion or add them like an eskimo. Hoodies are ideal-not a sexy garment but very practical! Put it up when you want to a) Save your hair b) Hide from someone c) Get in the zone. I heard there's a thing called a Shewee which helps women to pee in public, apparently it comes in multiple colours - but I cannot and will not condone that. Ever. 

Tune in to ELLE UK's Instagram on Saturday 11th July for #AngelaTakeover at T In The Park
