Singer makes triumphant return to the UK

Britney Spears brought her Circus tour to London last night.

The singer, 27, descended from the roof in a silver hoop to rapturous applause.

She looked lively and happy as she performed her catalogue of hits to 23,000 screaming fans.

Britney last toured the UK in 2004.

Since then, she’s divorced Kevin Federline, 31, shaved her head, been hospitalised, and had control of her estate, finances and well-being handed to dad Jamie.

She closed the show with her hits Toxic and Baby One More Time.
