Leona Lewis is helping to spread the festive cheer this Christmas as she hits the road for her latest tour. For fans who have had the pop star on their annual Yuletide playlist, it promises to be the perfect early gift from Santa with help from a support act.
The former X-Factor winner, who lifted the crown in the third series, claimed Christmas No.1 in 2006 with A Moment Like This. She has since released the album Christmas, With Love and it includes seasonal favourites as well as her own festive track - One More Sleep.
Leona Lewis put out an expanded version of the Christmas album in 2021 - which included a feature with Ne-Yo. She will now hit the road and springle some Yuletide cheer in major cities across the UK over the coming days and weeks.
However she was forced to cancel the show in Southend on Saturday, 2 December, after losing her voice. The singer had been suffering with a "sore throat" and lost her voice during the gig in Cardiff - but the tour has since resumed.
