The I Look to You singer will play five arena dates starting next April in venues across England and Scotland.

"This is my first full tour since the My Love Is Your Love tour in 1999 and I am so excited to be performing for my fans around the world after all this time," she said.

"I am putting together a great show and cannot wait to perform the songs from my new album I Look to You along with some of your favourites."

The 46-year-old star will also make a TV appearance on talent show The X Factor this Sunday - her first UK television appearance in 12 years. Whitney - who has sold more than 140million albums worldwide - is making her long-awaited musical comeback after overcoming drug addiction.

The rest of her European dates will also see her perform in Germany, Switzerland, Austria and Belgium. - Bang
