Miranda. Miranda (Miranda Hart). Image credit: British Broadcasting Corporation.Miranda Hart, who has risen to nationwide fame thanks to the success of her BBC sitcom Miranda, has announced she is to undertake a nationwide tour in 2014.

The comedian performed sketches and stand-up on the live circuit before the success of her TV series, and this is the comedy format she will return to for My, What I Call, Live Show, albeit in larger venues. Hart will perform 13 arena dates, including at London's O2.

She posted on Twitter yesterday: "Call me a tease but: am doing One Show tonight and I will be revealing something big. (Not my breasts)." She then told presenters Matt Baker and Alex Jones on the programme: "I'm quite excited and nervous, but I've decided - and it's all organised - I'm going to do a stand-up tour. It starts on the 28th February 2014, so in a year." She then added "Please come and see me!"

Details were also posted on the comedian's website, but it soon crashed. Now online again, the tour is billed as follows: "The award winning Queen of Comedy is on stage doing stand-up for the first time since her hit series Miranda aired on the BBC. Grab a chance to see Miranda's laugh out loud genius live. She wants you to join her party. Expect galloping, attempts at song and dance, and simply - such fun!"
