Calum Scott announced as Emeli Sande's tour support on her autumn UK arena tour

Emeli and her special guest will embark on a 10-date stint this October.

Calum Scott, who had the UK's best-selling song of the summer in 2016, has been announced as Emeli Sandé's support act for her arena tour later this year.

The former Britain's Got Talent finalist, who is currently finishing up his debut studio album, was described by Emeli as "an incredible talent" and will join her for the 10-date stint this October.

Emeli has had a huge return to the music industry with her new album Long Live The Angels. The album was 2016's fastest-selling album from a British female solo artist, peaking at Number 2 on the Official Albums Chart.

The Scottish vocalist scooped the BRIT Award for Best British Female, was named an MBE by the Queen, and is set to appear on the Grenfell Tower charity single organised by Simon Cowell. View Emeli Sandé's full UK chart history here.

Meanwhile, Calum Scott proved he was the dark horse of the UK music industry last year when his cover of Robyn's Dancing On My Own finished 2016 as the 4th most downloaded track. Calum has since sold out a show at KOKO in London, released another single Rhythm Inside and appears on Matrix & Futurebound's new song Light Us Up.
