Joanna Lumley has announced her “fabulous” first ever live tour which will be stopping off in Glasgow.

It’s All About Me, in which the actress will discuss adventures from her career and “recount some never heard before stories”, kicks off on October 6 next year.

She will be heading to the SEC Armadillo in Glasgow on October 11 before moving onto the EICC in Edinburgh the following night.

The Ab Fab star, 71, said: “The thought of this tour… has completely taken over my waking hours.

“It’s utterly thrilling to start planning the stories I can tell, and the rapture (and gratitude, to be fair) with which I shall greet the audiences.

“Nothing like this has come my way before, and I may have to be dragged off with a hook at the end of each show. Oh people! This is especially for you from me, with masses of love. I think it will be fabulous.”

Lumley will be joined on stage by friend and producer Clive Tulloh, who will put to her questions from the audience, during the 30-date UK and Ireland tour, which begins at Belfast’s Waterfront Hall.

Tickets will be available from 10am on Thursday, November 30, 2017 via
