Busker Luke will be headlining his own tour in April, kicking things off in Totnes, Devon.

From there, the 18-year-old will then travel up and down the country, finishing his six date tour at The Borderline in London.

Excited to get on the road and get his music out there, Luke tweeted: "This week is too insane for any words, I know I keep saying this but bloody hell, THANK YOU SO MUCH! #HoleInMyHeart."

Luke first shot to stardom after he auditioned for the X Factor. Following his rendition of 'Stand By Me', he was praised by the judging panel with Sharon Osbourne telling the star she was crazy about him.

Making it to the final, Luke finished in third place and the series was later won by Sam Bailey.

Since his appearance on the show, Luke has kept himself out of the limelight and in the studio working on his debut album.

A source told the Daily Star: "Luke wanted to take his time and produce the strongest album possible and that's what he's done... The first single is picked. It's an epic anthem."
