Justin Timberlake posed for selfies with a fan during his headline show at the Virgin Media V Festival last night (16.08.14).

The 'Mirrors' hitmaker was stunned here were ''so f***ing many'' people gathered at the main stage in Chelmsford's Hylands Park to watch him perform, and after seeing one audience member holding a sign explaining it was their birthday and they wanted a selfie with him, the former N*Sync star was happy to oblige.

Justin - who donned a pork-pie hat and Tom Ford suit for his appearance - thrilled fans with a set which included his classic hits 'Cry Me A River', 'SexyBack' and 'Take Back the Night', as well a snippet of his Jay-Z collaboration 'Holy Grail' and a cover of the Jacksons' 'Shake Your Body (Down to the Ground)'.

At the end of his performance, the singer thanked the other artists on the bill, which had included Kaiser Chiefs, Example and Bastille, and made a special mention of Ed Sheeran, who had performed directly before him, as he hailed him his ''brother from a redheaded mother, a baaad motherf****r''.

The festival continues today (17.08.14) in both Chelmsford and Stafford, with The Killers topping the bill in Essex and Justin leading the line-up at the Weston Park site.
