The show will be broadcast at 8pm GMT on Tuesday (October 20), with the singer interviewing Russian punk activist group Pussy Riot on air.

Ahead of the show, Charli said: "I’m excited to bring to you the things that I like and what’s been going on in my weird little world".

Charli XCX recently compared her new album to Paris Hilton's music and revealed that she is writing for Rihanna.

The British pop star recently pulled out of a co-headline tour of America with Bleachers in order to "be creative" and record a new album.

Now, in a new interview with The Mirror, XCX revealed that her new songs are sounding like an unlikely pop star.

"I’ve been really inspired by Paris Hilton, small dogs and a glitter, luxe lifestyle," she said. "I’ve never met Paris before, but we were both at the amFAR Gala during the Cannes Film Festival this year. I was performing and I saw her singing along to my song and I freaked out. I’m such a fan and one of my favourite songs ever is 'Stars Are Blind' – it’s pop genius.”

In addition to her own music, XCX could soon add one of the world's biggest artists to her list of collaborators. “I’m a really big Rihanna fan and I think she’s such an incredible artist,” she said. “She’s my favourite pop girl. She’s the real deal. I’ve actually been to a couple of writing sessions for Rihanna’s new record. It was really fun to put together a couple of tracks.”

Meanwhile, Rita Ora recently said that she wants to cover 'Lady Marmalade' with Miley Cyrus, Iggy Azalea and Charli XCX. However, Azalea later declined the offer, saying that the song "should be left alone".
