The BBC has announced it will air One Love Manchester, a charity concert following the Manchester terror attack, live this Sunday night.

22 people were killed and many more injured in a suicide bomb attack at Manchester Arena following an Ariana Grande concert last Monday.

A charity concert headlined by Ariana will be held this weekend at Manchester's Old Trafford cricket ground, it's been announced today.

Ariana will be joined by Justin Bieber, Coldplay, Katy Perry, Niall Horan, Take That, Miley, Pharrell & Usher at the One Love Manchester Concert which takes place on Sunday, June 4.

The BBC has revealed that coverage of the concert will air from 6:55M live on BBC One until 10PM. The concert itself is scheduled to begin at 7:15PM.

Ariana said: "I don't want to go the rest of the year without being able to see and hold and uplift my fans".

"I'll be returning to the incredibly brave city of Manchester to spend time with my fans and to have a benefit concert in honour and raise money for the victims and their families."

As well as airing on TV, the concert will be streamed online and broadcast on both the BBC and Capital Radio networks.

BBC director general Tony Hall said: "Bringing the nation together, the BBC is proud to be broadcasting what will undoubtedly be a moving tribute to the victims and their loved ones."

Those who attended Ariana's concert last Monday are able to redeem free tickets to the benefit gig, while further tickets will go on sale from Thursday. All proceeds will be donated to the We Love Manchester emergency fund, which has been set up by Manchester City Council, in conjunction with the British Red Cross.
