Ariana Grande has returned to Manchester for her One Love Manchester benefit concert following the terrorist attack which claimed the life of 22 people at her concert on Monday 22 May.

Over the course of the evening a host of artists will join the singer on stage, including Little Mix, Black Eyed Peas, Take That and Robbie Williams.

Before Ariana took to the stage, her manager Scooter Braun delivered a heartfelt and emotion-fuelled speech to the crowd at Old Trafford and to the viewers at home.

Paying tribute to those affected by both the Manchester attack and the events in London last night, he said: "Last night you were challenged as a nation you were challenged, and this [concert] is beautiful to see."

He continued, holding back tears: "You said you are Manchester and we are here!

Hatred will never win, they will never divide us. Manchester your bravery is our hope.

"Fear will never divide us because on this day we all stood with Manchester."
