Ariana Grande's mother walked through the crowds of last night's One Love Manchester concert at Old Trafford to comfort and assure fans there was nothing to be afraid of.

Joan Grande was attending the star-studded benefit concert organised by her daughter to raise funds for the victims of last month's terror attack at Manchester Arena, which killed 22 and left 59 others injured.

Showing moral support to Ariana and her fans, Joan was pictured greeting and hugging those at the gig, while telling them to 'be strong' and 'do not be afraid'.

Last night's emotional concert saw Ariana being joined by special guests including Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, Pharrell Williams, Justin Bieber, Coldplay and Liam Gallagher.

The popstar had said she would be returning to the UK following the terror attack after cancelling her Dangerous Woman shows in London and Europe.

In an emotional message on Twitter, the 23-year-old singer had announced: 'I'll be returning to the incredibly brave city of Manchester to spend time with my fans and to raise money for the victims and their families.

'From the day we started putting the Dangerous Woman Tour together, I said that this show, more than anything else, was intended to be a safe space for my fans.

'A place for them to escape, to celebrate, to heal, to feel safe and to be themselves. To meet their friends they've made online. To express themselves.

'This will not change that.'

Proceeds from last night's concert go to British Red Cross's Manchester Emergency Fund, and it's estimated to have made £2 million for the families of the victims of the attack.
