RATINGS! 11 million tune in to watch One Love Manchester concert

Ariana Grande at One Love Manchester charity concert

The One Love Manchester concert saw an audience of 11 million viewers on BBC One last night.

One Love Manchester was held on Sunday 4 June at Emirates Old Trafford Cricket Ground to honour and raise vital funds for the victims and families who were tragically affected by the Manchester attack after Ariana Grande’s show last week.

The concert featured performances by Ariana Grande, Justin Bieber, Coldplay, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, Pharrell Williams, Take That and Niall Horan, with added acts including Little Mix, Robbie Williams and Black Eyed Peas.

TV coverage of the event saw an average audience of 10.9 million viewers, with a peak audience of 14.5 million at 10PM as the stars performed One Last Time together to close the show.

The numbers make it the most watched TV programme of the year so far, based on overnight figures, overtaking Britain's Got Talent which moved its final to Saturday for the concert.

Of course, the numbers only take into account those who watched on TV and not those who streamed the event online.

Figures for YouTube and Facebook's streams alone showed an additional 1 million viewers, with the concert also broadcast on TV stations in other countries.

After the gig, BBC News had 8.4 million viewers to ITV News' 1.7 million.
