The star also shared a portrait of a McDonalds meal alongside more Union Jack flags, further teasing the collaboration.
Britney previously joined forces with Elton on their 2022 track Hold Me Closer, her first track since her 13-year conservatory ended.
In September last year, Elton said in an interview that he was keen to ‘help boost Britney’s confidence’ and hopes the duet ‘will be the momentum’ for Britney to record new music.
Elton said that he was ‘so happy for her, because it’s got her back to what she’s famous for, being a singer and an artist.’
The Toxic singer is thought to be enjoying a holiday in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico with husband Sam Asghari, but it doesn’t mean to say she couldn’t hop on a flight to the UK in time for a performance on Sunday.
After all, she did recently send fans wild after sharing a conveniently-timed post announcing she was headed to London for a ‘shopping trip- – though she’s since deleted that post.
It comes after David Furnish revealed Elton is set to have four surprise guests performing in his Glastonbury headline show – his last UK performance which will bring an end to his Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour.
Speaking to Sky News presenter Beth Rigby, David said he’s ‘sworn to secrecy’ on the identity of the mystery acts, but described Elton’s headline slot as ‘very special.’
It comes amid huge speculation that Harry Styles could be one of the mystery names taking to the stage, after fans noted that there was a perfect gap in his own tour to make room for a surprise appearance.

Other rumoured names include Dua Lipa, Rina Sawayama and Lil Nas X, who is already booked to perform at the festival right before him.
David said: ‘Four collaborators of his choosing. People, he just thought, ‘I’d really like to do something with these artists at Glastonbury’. And that’s all I’m going to say’.
Asked who they might be, Furnish added: ‘Sorry. I am sworn to secrecy’.
‘This one is very special. It is not just another day in office,’ David told Beth. ‘It’s a different setlist – it’s a huge outdoor live festival.
‘He’s got four different collaborators joining him on stage at different times, who I won’t name, sorry.
‘So, he’s done a lot of changes. A lot on his plate, so I think he’s anxious. Yeah, but I think good, anxious, healthy anxious.’
David added that despite the end of Elton’s farewell tour, he has no plans to retire completely, and will be working on a new album in the autumn.
He joked: ‘I don’t think he’ll be sitting on the sofa with a remote control.
‘He’s going to go back into the studio in October and start his next album. Which will be great. He’s not done a studio album in a long time.’
