Ariana Grande paid a young victim of the Manchester terror attack a surprise hospital visit.

Jaden Farrell-Mann, 10, suffered fractures to both her legs and shrapnel wounds as a result of the attack last month.

She has been Royal Manchester Children's Hospital where she has undergone surgery to treat her injuries.

Her mum told the MEN that she had been left with 'a smile on her face' following the singer's visit this evening.

Jaden's mum Sharon told the MEN that her daughter was absolutely amazed.

She added: "Jaden was just sat there watching TV and she walked in. She was absolutely amazed. It was a complete surprise.

"She'd met Prince William earlier today and then Ariana walked in.

"She has a big smile anyway but it got even bigger, Ariana gave her a hug and a kiss, she was in awe.

"It was absolutely fantastic to see, she was so happy."

Ariana had arrived into the UK at Stansted Airport on Friday ahead of the tribute gig for the victims on Sunday.

'One Love Manchester' and will feature a star-studded line-up which includes Justin Bieber, Black Eyed Peas, Take That, Coldplay and Katy Perry.

The tickets went on sale on Thursday morning and sold out within minutes.

In a further announcement, it is understood that pupils from a local primary school - who were at the Manchester Arena gig - will perform during Ariana's set.

Twenty-four pupils from Parrs Wood High School's Harmony Choir have been chosen to sing with Ariana, and teacher Daniel McDwyer told The Times he was 'delighted' the children would be involved.

He said: "So, so proud. Love you, Manchester. Going to be such a beautiful tribute."

Shaunna Burns, 17, will be performing after initially winning her tickets to go and see the gig. She said: "It's so surreal. You do not think one second you are going to see a performer and then the next be on stage with her."

She added: "We've had a different look on everything now because we fortunately did get out safe and unharmed and we want to do as much as we can for people that didn't. It's given more motivation just to help."

Whereas many are welcoming the idea of the concert, others are not so keen. Freya Lewis, 14, was hit by flying shrapnel, and left with multiple fractures, lacerations and burns. Her dad believes the timing is 'insensitive'.

Writing on the school's blog, he said: "Freya caught a little bit of TV this morning, we've been making sure she doesn't see the news.

"Unfortunately, we didn't manage to stop her hearing mention of the Ariana charity concert on Sunday night which she found very distressing.

"The concert is a great idea and the support of the artists is fantastic, but the timing so soon after the bombing, in our opinion, is insensitive at best."

The concert will be broadcast live on BBC TV and radio as well as Capital Radio.
