Pink's fans gifted her a range of presents during her BST Hyde Park show including frog teddies, flowers — a huge wheel of brie and a bag containing a fan's mother's ashes.

The Grammy-winner, 43, was mid performance of her song Perfect when an enormous wheel of French cheese, Brie De Meaux, made its way through the audience — which included Hugh Jackman — thought to cost between £60 - £100+ for the 3kg block.

The Just Like A Pill singer gave the fan an air hug and thanked her for the gift, but the singer was taken aback after being handed a bag of ashes.

She asked a member of the crowd: "Wait, this is your mum?"

Pink added: "I don't know how I feel about this," before putting the remains next to a speaker.

"I have to say that was a first."

The 'coolest' star, who performed in London with support from her friend Gwen Stefani, also helped a fan get engaged during a cover of Bob Dylan’s Make You Feel My Love and was joined on stage by her daughter Willow Sage, 12, for Cover Me In Sunshine.

The mum-of-two closed her set with So What while zipping above the crowd in a 'death-defying' stunt and landing on a platform.

The singer tweeted: "@BSTHydePark it is the joy of my life to play with all of you. I am never not grateful. #blessedbeyondbelief #summercarnivaltour #weouthere."

Gwen Stefani, 53, opened for the singer and rocked out classics including Hollaback Girl.

Other artists set to perform at this year's BST Hyde Park include Guns N'Roses, Take That, Lana Del Rey, Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, and Billy Joel.

One fan commented: "Ashes and a wheel of brie, oh Pink is a actual icon."

"Ashes and now cheese... wtf," wrote a second.

"Concert goer carried that wheel the whole time?" asked a third.

"How did they get that past security?" inquired a fourth.

Another wrote: "Already looking forward to what's next."

"People are getting weird nowadays," remarked one fan.

"I know she threw it straight in the trash after the show," commented another.
