Madonna will be performing at the Brits, the singer has confirmed.

The 56-year-old was previously rumoured to be on the bill for the music awards ceremony, when her spokeswoman called the news “just speculative”.

Now she has posted a message to her fans on Twitter, writing: “Hello to all my UK Rebel Hearts!!! See you at the Brits on Feb 25th”.

Madonna, who is releasing new album Rebel Heart, will also be on stage at the Grammys next month.

The Like A Virgin star last performed at the Brits in 1995, when she sang Bedtime Story.

She will join already-confirmed acts Ed Sheeran, Taylor Swift and Sam Smith, who will take to the stage at the ceremony later this month.

Sam Smith heads the nominations for this year's awards after being shortlisted for five gongs, while Ed Sheeran and George Ezra follow with four apiece.

It was previously announced that Take That will also be on stage at the event, at the O2 in London and broadcast on ITV.
