Britney Spears has confirmed she will perform two concerts in London next June.

The shows at the 02 arena will be the only European concerts on her world tour.

The concerts will take their theme from her latest album The Circus, which is being released next week.

The 26-year-old will also be in the capital this weekend to appear on ITV1 talent show The X Factor.

Britney's tour promoter Rob Hallett said the world tour was going to be very special.

He said audiences could look forward to a "musical circus" with jugglers, dancers and acrobats.

Britney last performed in the UK in 2004 when she visited Birmingham, Glasgow, Belfast, Manchester and the Wembley Arena in London.
