Remember back when the weather was gorgeous and Ariana Grande's amazing Carpool Karaoke with James Corden dropped? She could be seen singing her massive hit, 'Side To Side' and even Celine Dion's song 'It's All Coming Back To Me Now'. HOWEVER, there was one thing that everyone was wondering when they watched the episode. HOW did Ariana Grande hurt her hand?!

In the video her left hand can be seen bandaged up, and at the time no details were revealed, but now, as the 'world' celebrates Halloween, the reason for the mystery bandage has been revealed! In a brand new video uploaded to the official channel of The Late Late Show with James Corden, Ariana and James decide to visit an escape room.

It isn't any old escape room though, this is a scary escape room, which sees the pair having to figure out puzzles whilst jumping out of their skins as actors dressed as ghosts and ghouls scare them! Fun? We aren't sure, to be honest, but in Ariana's own words, "I love being scared, I think it's so much fun."

Now take a look at some of the best Carpool Karaokes:

The pair finally manage to escape, but after returning to the car, James asks the 'One Last Time' singer "How are you feeling? How's your hand?"
