Adele is going back on tour after recovering from a chest infection that forced her to cancel six UK shows.

She's due to take to the stage again on Tuesday 13 September in Leicester, after doctors gave her the all clear.

The cancelled gigs in Wolverhampton, Blackpool, Cardiff, Plymouth and Bournemouth will all be rescheduled.

Meanwhile, there's more good news for the singer as she's included in the latest Guinness Book of World Records for setting three new UK records.

They're all connected to the global success of her latest album, 21, and are...

  • Solo female with both the most weeks in a row at number one - 11
  • Solo female with the most cumulative weeks at the top - 21
  • First woman to have two singles and two albums in the UK top five at the same time
