Festival-goers at the V2003 music festival basked in the sunshine today after enjoying music from top band Coldplay.
The British band played last night at Highlands Park, Chelmsford, watched by 60,000 people and Hollywood star Gwyneth Paltrow.
Ms Paltrow was spotted watching boyfriend vocalist Chris Martin from the sidelines along with fellow American actress Kirsten Dunst, Mark Owen and model Jodie Kidd.
Virgin Radio DJ Ben Jones, who introduced the band, said the blonde was "gazing at him (Martin) really, really lovingly."
The glamorous couple were recently rumoured to be tying the knot in America in the autumn. But Martin has denied the rumours.
Speaking on Virgin Radio earlier this week, he said: "Do not believe everything you read in the papers, we are not getting married." Coldplay played three new songs and a cover of Itâ€™s A Wonderful World.
Mr Jones said the audience loved every minute.
He said: "The Hives, Feeder and Coldplay were amazing, in particular Coldplay lived up to the occasion. The Foo Fighters were good but did not live up to expectations."
Tonight the Red Hot Chilli Peppers are playing at Chelmsford. Mr Jones said: "Red Hot Chilli Peppers are going to give Coldplay a run for their money tonight."
Coldplay will also be playing tonight at Weston Park, Staffordshire, where the festival is also going on.
