Ariana Grande is getting an hour-long BBC special

Ariana Grande is to be the subject of a BBC special hosted by Davina McCall set to air later this year.

Following in the footsteps of Harry Styles, Michael Bublé and Adele, Ariana will be the latest performer to star in the hour-long special, which will feature the singer performing material from her new album Sweetener, accompanied by an all-female orchestra.

It will be the singer's first appearance on BBC One since the One Love Manchester concert held last June to raise money for all those affected by the attack at her Manchester concert.

As well as performing, Ariana will also be interviewed by Davina McCall, who shared that she was "really excited" about talking to the singer.

"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," Davina said.

"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."

Ariana is currently at number one in the UK album chart with her latest album Sweetener.

The album, which was released a fortnight ago, contains a special tribute to the victims of the Manchester terror attack, where 22 people were killed at her concert in May 2017.

The final track 'Get Well Soon' includes 40 seconds of silence which makes the song exactly 5:22 in length, the date of the Manchester bombing.

She also paid a special tribute to Manchester in her video for 'No Tears Left to Cry', by featuring a worker bee – the symbol of Manchester – flying on the right hand side of the screen at the very end of the video.
