Tulisa shows off her washboard abs in a black bandeau crop top and cycling shorts as she arrives in Manchester

She returned to the music scene back in April after a three-year hiatus. 

And Tulisa looked every inch The Female Boss as she strutted through Manchester station ahead of her show on Saturday.

The singer, 31, put on an ab-flashing display as she slipped her incredible figure into a tiny black bandeau crop top, which she teamed with lycra cycling shorts.

Shrugging a grey silk bomber jacket over her shoulders, Tulisa teased a hint of cleavage as well as her enviably-taut midriff in the figure-hugging crop top.  

Toting a suitcase in one hand and a designer handbag in the other, the N Dubz star wrapped a black hoodie around her waist and opted for comfort on her feet with white trainers. 

Tulisa wore her glossy dark hair in a sleek straight look and accentuated her bronzed tan with a glamorous make-up look.

Stun in silver like Tulisa in Mint Velvet

She's recently made her return to the music industry and Tulisa looked every inch the off-duty pop star when she was pictured arriving in Manchester on Saturday before her show.

Keeping it casual for her journey, Tulisa wore black jersey cycling shorts, a matching bandeau top and had a sweatshirt tied around her waist. She added a touch of glam with a satin bomber jacket from Mint Velvet, complete with silver and black panelling. The jacket features a chunky silver zip and metallic elastic detailing.

The Playing With Fire hitmaker appeared in high spirits as she strolled through the station with her manager Gareth Varey. 

Earlier this year, Tulisa said she was excited to return to the spotlight - although she had to prepare herself for the scrutiny of being in the public eye.

She said on Loose Women: 'It had to be right there’s no point putting music out there for the fact of putting music out there, I had to take some time, think about what I wanted. 

'I’m not superhuman, what I told myself was tough love, this is all I have known and what I’ve done all my life. 

'You know what it sounds cliché but it’s like riding a bike you've either got it in you or you haven’t. Singing music and entertaining is always something I have wanted to do it is there or it isn’t.'  

Tulisa first shot to fame as a member of multi platinum selling band N-Dubz, where they achieved two platinum albums, a UK No.1 single, sold more than four million records and won 4 MOBO Awards.
