And the Grammy Award-winner is also confirmed to be performing a new song on the show.

Foxes, speaking about her casting says: "I can't believe I'm actually going to be in an episode of Doctor Who! Especially as it all came about from a chance meeting.

"I was playing a gig and got chatting to the shows production team who'd been watching my performance. I was telling them how much I loved 'Doctor Who' and next thing they invited me to be on it. I couldn't think of a better place to make my acting debut than on one of the UK's most iconic shows!"

Steven Moffat, lead writer and executive producer, adds: “We are completely thrilled that the amazingly talented Foxes is joining us on board ... well, you'll see. Let's just say, the Doctor is finally catching up on his phone calls.”

Foxes has recently been on tour in the UK, supporting her album 'Glorious', and her three hit singles, 'Youth', 'Let Go For Tonight' and 'Holding Onto Heaven'.

Other guest stars confirmed to join Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman in the new series include Frank Skinner, Ben Miller, Tom Riley, Keeley Hawes and Hermione Norris.
