Ariana Grande was seen arriving in the UK this morning
The 23-year-old – who is set to be joined by the likes of Katy Perry, Justin Bieber, Coldplay and Miley Cyrus just to name just a few at the star-studded event – was seen touching down at London Stansted at 7am this morning.
Tickets for the gig – which will take place at Old Trafford Cricket Ground – went on sale on Thursday morning and were snapped up in just six minutes, with all proceeds going towards the We Love Manchester Emergency Fund to support grieving families and victims.
Ariana announced that she would be returning to the city in a heartfelt statement shared on her Twitter profile on Friday following last Monday’s horrific bombing; which saw 22 innocent concert-goers get killed and a further 119 injured.

The singer – who said that she was “broken” immediately after the attack, but then stayed quiet until she release a statement vowing to perform a special concert – sent her “deepest condolences to the victims and their loved ones”.
Ariana shared: “My heart, prayers and deepest condolences are with the victims of the Manchester Attack and their loved ones. There is nothing I or anyone can do to take away the pain you are feeling or to make this better.
“However, I extend my hand and heart and everything I possibly can give to you and yours, should you want or need my help in any way. The only thing we can do now is choose how we let this affect us and how we live our lives from here on out."

She continued: “I have been thinking of my fans, and of you all, non stop over the past week. The way you have handled all of this has been more inspiring and made me more proud than you'll ever know.
“The compassion, kindness, love, strength and oneness that you've shown one another this past week is the exact opposite of the heinous intentions it must take to pull off something as evil as what happened Monday. You are the opposite."
The One Love Manchester benefit concert will be aired live on BBC One on Sunday from 6.55pm.
