Lily Allen and Dizzee Rascal have announced they'll be playing two dates together in Manchester and London next March.

The pair will appear at the MEN Arena on 5 March and The O2 Arena on 7 March.

"I'm really looking forward to playing these special shows. I'm a massive fan of what Dizzee does," she said.

The announcement comes days after Lily Allen said she had no plans to make another record and that she hadn't renegotiated her recording contract with her label.

Lily Allen's recently returned from a tour of America and live dates in Australia and Japan.

Tickets for both shows go on sale on Friday 9 October at 9am and will cost between £27.50 and £29.50.

Dizzee Rascal said he was looking forward to the shows: "Lily and I have both worked well in the past so it's no doubt these shows will be nights to remember."

Dizzee Rascal is appearing at next month's BBC Electric Proms at London's Camden Roundhouse accompanied by a live band and 16-piece orchestra.

The Bow rapper's new album Tongue N' Cheek has entered the album chart at number three.

Lily Allen was a guest vocalist on Dizzee Rascal's Mercury Prize nominated third album Maths + English.
