A smiley Helen shared two pictures to Instagram as she thanked the ‘If I Were a Boy’ hit maker for her performance. The Countryfile presenter wrote: “Dusted off the dancing shoes. @stephlunch. Thank you @beyonce #beyonce #dance #music”.

Whilst Steph created a video of their “sensational” girls night out in Sunderland to the music of Run the World (Girls) by Beyoncé. She wrote: “Beyoncé concert in Sunderland with my mates - it was SENSATIONAL!! 👑 🐝 #beyoncé”.

Beyoncé’s seventh studio album Renaissance (Act I) was released on 29 July 2022 and is the first instalment of a trilogy of albums. The 16-song album reached the number one spot on the UK and US charts, and has won five albums including a Grammy Award for Best Dance/Electronic Album in 2023.

The Texas-born singer kicked off the Renaissance World Tour in Stockholm, Sweden on 10 May 2023 and will finish in New Orleans, US on 27 September 2023. Beyoncé will perform at 57 shows including five at London’s Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and one in her home city of Houston.
