"I have news! No, not another baby it’s a Kitchen Disco UK tour! And an album, Songs From The Kitchen Disco! It has all my singles in one place, plus some covers," the 41-year-old wrote.

Next May will see the Murder on the Dancefloor hitmaker take to the stage in Glashow, Birmingham, Southend, London, Bexhill, Guildford, Manchester and Leeds.

Presale tickets are currently available for those who preorder the album via her website, with general release taking place on Friday 17 July at 10am via Ticketmaster.

She went on to share in her post: "The lockdown discos we shared have inspired me and I want to see all your faces so I can sing for you and give you a night where just for a little while, we can all lose ourselves under the mirror ball and dance and have fun.

"Won’t that feel magical?! I CAN’T WAIT!!! So excited xxxxxx."

Ellis-Bextor performed from her home weekly for 10 weeks during the beginning of the UK's lockdown, broadcasting it to Instagram Live with help from her husband Richard Jones, bassist of The Feeling.

The couple's five sons regularly appeared in the background as Ellis-Bextor danced around their London home. They are parents to Sonny, 16, Kit, 11, Ray, eight, Jesse, five, and one-year-old Mickey.

On Tuesday, Ellis-Bextor shared she would be doing a one-off kitchen disco party to celebrate the summer holidays.
