Snow Patrol, Adele and Kaiser Chiefs will all play live in their own living rooms as part of the BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge tour.

The acts will take it in turns to play host to the Jo Whiley show in the week beginning 22 September, while Girls Aloud will play at the DJ's home.

Razorlight, meanwhile, will round off the week of special performances by playing from their tour rehearsal room.

In May, Whiley announced that she was pregnant with her fourth child.

The Live Lounge tour week will feature Adele on Monday, Snow Patrol on Tuesday, Kaiser Chiefs on Wednesday, Girls Aloud on Thursday and Razorlight on Friday.

The Live Lounge is a regular feature on Whiley's show in which a band or singer gives a stripped-down performance of one of their own songs plus a cover version.

Last year's tour saw McFly play from singer Tom Fletcher's house and singer-songwriter Jack Penate performing from his mother's house.

The Enemy also performed in the house of drummer Liam Watts's mother while Stereophonics played from the home of singer Kelly Jones.

Singer Mika, meanwhile, played at Jo Whiley's home.
