Mariah Carey is planning to open the doors to her fabulous life in a new reality show.

Rumours the singer would be filming a documentary series had been circulating for weeks and on Tuesday (15Mar16), the star confirmed the news that an eight-part series has been given the go-ahead.

Mariah's World will air on the E! Network and will feature eight, one-hour episodes and will follow the singer as she embarks on her Sweet Sweet Fantasy Tour while planning her upcoming wedding to fiance James Packer.

"I’m excited to bring my fans into my life for the next journey I'm about to embark on,” she said in a press release. “I’m already having so much fun with this documentary and I know you will too. There is nothing like capturing these moments.”

The first date of Mariah's tour began on Tuesday night in Glasgow, Scotland, and while no transmission date for the show has been confirmed, cameras are already rolling capturing all of the star's outrageous antics.

"Mariah is one of the most captivating pop superstars of our time and one of the rare artists whose first name alone is instantly recognised around the globe," said Jeff Olde, Executive Vice President, Programming & Development, at E! "We’re excited to partner with Bunim/Murray Productions, Mariah and Stella Bulochnikov to offer our viewers exclusive access into her private world.

"The series will present a unique, vulnerable and surprisingly humorous side to Mariah that her fans have never before seen, while showcasing her unparalleled celebrity lifestyle filled with true glamour, maximum luxury and ultimate stardom."

Fans will hope the series will be as revealing as her infamous appearance on MTV's Cribs show in 2002, when she exercised in a pair of stilettos and took a bath for the camera wrapped in a towel.
