The star spent time with youngsters at the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital in a surprise appearance ahead of a benefit concert on Sunday. Adam Harrison said his daughter Lily “felt like a rock star” after meeting her idol and was “chomping at the bit” to attend the One Love concert. Suicide bomber Salman Abedi killed 22 and injured dozens more at the gig. Grande arrived back in the UK on Friday morning ahead of the concert at Old Trafford cricket ground. Stars including Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, Coldplay, Take That and Miley Cyrus will join her for the event which is raising funds for victims and their families. Mr Harrison, whose daughter suffered spinal injuries in the blast, said Lily was “skipping” with joy after meeting Grande. “She is on cloud nine,” he said. “She is made up. “We were the last room on the ward to be visited and the excitement was building for Lily.”
Mr Harrison attended the 22 May concert with his daughter and said he picked her up “like a rugby ball and ran for it” following the explosion.
