Mum-of-two Britney, who touched down in the UK late on Sunday night for a promotional tour, said: "It's a personal album and all my family always call me Britney Jean, it's like a term of endearment. I just wanted to share that with my fans."

Britney Jean, which will be a follow-up to 2011's Femme Fatale, is due for release on 3 December.

Speaking about her two-year residency at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas, Britney said: "I'm really stoked about it, I've toured the world so many times and been in different hotels every night.

Britney, who will perform 50 shows a year, added: "It'll be nice to have one place to be at for me, my children and my family. A tour based in one place just seems ideal."

Meanwhile, Britney's new single 'Work B**ch', will be released next month on 3 November.
