Comedian Miranda Hart will perform a live stand-up tour in 2014.

Hart, whose sitcom returns on Boxing Day, announced the news in an interview on The One Show to promote her new book, Is It Just Me?

It will be the first time Hart has returned to the stand-up scene since her hit series Miranda aired on the BBC.

When asked about her big news, she said: “Yes. I’ll be doing a stand-up tour of the UK from January 2014. Tickets are on sale from Monday on my website.”

Earlier this year, Hart told BBC Radio Five’s Richard Bacon that she was considering a tour: “I might be doing a stand-up tour in the future, that’s the first time I’ve ever said it.

“I haven’t done a full hour’s stand-up before. I used to MC a lot and did a lot of spots – lots of charity shows with ten-minute spots, but I’ve never done a full stand-up show.”

She will play arenas around the UK on the 12-date tour, including Manchester’s MEN on 15 March and the Metro Radio Arena, Newcastle, on 19 March.

Hart’s website crashed earlier tonight due to demand for tickets.
