The air date for the special on TV has now been confirmed as Thursday, November 1 at 8PM on BBC One.

Davina McCall said: “Since I’ve been asked to do this show… I have been worried that someone is going to call up and tell me they’ve made a mistake and chosen the wrong presenter, because this seems just too good to be true.

"Ariana Grande is such an incredible talent. She’s very funny and incredibly kind and has achieved so much already in her career!!! I’m really excited about talking to her and, of course, hearing some of her amazing music.”

Jan Younghusband, BBC Music Head of TV Commissioning, added: “We are so delighted to have Ariana back on the BBC, she is an outstanding new talent so loved by audiences in the UK.”

Guy Freeman, Managing Director, Livewire Pictures, commented: “Ariana Grande is a standout international artist of her generation and we’re delighted to be working with her to create a bespoke show for BBC One, including some very special orchestral performance moments.”

Ariana - who is currently number 1 in the UK album charts, with her previous album Dangerous Woman also reaching number 1 - will follow Adele At The BBC (which was nominated for Best Entertainment Programme at the Bafta Awards); Michael Bublé At The BBC, Harry Styles At The BBC; Sam Smith At The BBC; and U2 At The BBC.

Ariana last appeared on BBC One in 2017 when she headlined the One Love concert in Manchester which paid tribute to those that lost their lives and were injured at the Manchester Arena Bombing.
