She said: “I’ve so enjoyed touring with my amazing band over the past few years that it didn’t take very long for me to get the urge to hit the road again.

“We’ll be playing here, there and everywhere, so I invite fans old and new to come along and share a great night covering my six decades in music.”

It comes after she was announced as Take That’s special guest for their Greatest Hits Live Tour, where they are also joined by Rick Astley.

The Scottish singer-songwriter shot to fame aged 15 when Shout, a cover of the Isley Brothers track, became a hit.

Presale tickets will be available from 10am on April 17 with general tickets going on sale at 10am the next day.
