MILEY CYRUS pulled in the biggest audience ever seen at the O2 for her concert earlier this month, new stats have shown.
Not bad for a singer who rumour had it was dead.
The Hannah Montana star was watched by 16,196 fans for the 9 December show, one of five shows Miley is doing at the Greenwich venue, the London leg of her Wonder World world tour.
Demand for tickets was strong from the moment the 17-year-old announced her O2 stint and three more nights were added to the original two, with one more to come on 29 December.
Industry experts believe those sales figures would not have been quite so healthy had The Climb singer been dead, which was the buzz on Twitter recently.
The morbid rumour even took in fellow celeb Peaches Geldof, who was yesterday forced to beat a hasty retreat:
“Didn’t want to cause distress by tweeting that I’d heard that Miley had died,” she tapped. “Turns out it was thankfully a rumour. Glad to hear that x”
