Meanwhile, Harry Styles will perform his chart topping single, alongside other songs from his highly anticipated third album at a "One Night Only" show in London.

The Grammy-award winning singer, 28, will perform tracks from Harry's House for the first time at the O2 Academy Brixton on 24 May.

The much-anticipated album, which is due to be released on 20 May, follows the release of his chart-topping self-titled debut album in 2017 and his second offering, Fine Line, in 2019, which peaked at number two in the album charts.

Styles has previously said he created Harry's House during the pandemic after his schedule cleared for the first time since he rose to fame on The X Factor in 2010 with pop band One Direction.

The pop star recently paid tribute to his former boy band during a headline set at Coachella, appearing alongside special guest Lizzo to perform a rendition of their hit song What Makes You Beautiful.
