WHITNEY Houston has announced a series of five live shows for the UK next year (2010), including a night at London’s O2 Arena.

The tour will start in Manchester on Thursday, April 8, before heading to Glasgow, Birmingham and Newcastle and finishing at the O2 on April 25.

In the meantime, Houston is due to give her first UK TV performance in 12 years when she appears on Sunday night on ITV1’s The X Factor.

Her album I Look To You is released in the UK next Monday, October 19, having already become a US No.1 following its release there in September.
