Beyonce has banned all press photographers from her current The Mrs Carter Show world tour.

Only one approved snapper will be taking photos of the singer, supposedly because of the 'unflattering' photos released after her Super Bowl performance earlier in the year - such as the one below - reports The Guardian.

Frank Micelotta was the only professional photographer to shoot Beyonce at her recent shows in Amsterdam, Zagreb, Belgrade and Bratislava and no photo passes will be issued for the rest of the tour, which comes to the UK later in the week.

Beyonce plays Paris tonight (April 24) before her first UK show of this tour at Birmingham LG Arena on Friday (April 26).

Beyonce's UK tour sold out 12 minutes after going on sale back in February.

She will also be headlining V Festival in August, as well as appearing at London's Twickenham Stadium on June 1 alongside Florence + The Machine, Haim, Ellie Goulding, Rita Ora, Timbaland, John Legend and Iggy Azalea for the Chime For Change charity concert.

Beyonce has covered Amy Winehouse's 'Back To Black' as part of the soundtrack for the forthcoming Hollywood version of The Great Gatsby.

The song, which sees Beyonce collaborating with Andre 3000 of Outkast, was originally recorded and released by Amy Winehouse on the hugely successful album of the same name.

The track is part of her husband Jay-Z's official soundtrack for the film, which also features The xx, Jack White, Florence + The Machine and Lana Del Rey. The soundtrack is released on May 6.

Beyonce will play:

Birmingham LG Arena (April 26-27)
London O2 Arena (29-30, May 1, 3-5)
Manchester Arena (May 7-9)
Dublin The O2 (11-12)
