Harry Styles paid tribute to the Manchester Arena bombing victims as he performed at the same venue on Monday, 11 months after the attack.

The former One Direction star, 24, has been performing Ariana Grande's song Just A Little Bit Of Your Heart on his tour, but opened the song during his Northern leg by paying an emotional homage to the 23 people who were killed during the songstress' concert last year.

Addressing the arena, Harry asked his fans to join in as he explained: 'I stand with you, Manchester.'

Before performing the track - which he co-wrote with Ariana for her My Everything album, the star said: 'I grew up coming to my first concerts in this room, I love this room.

'The next song that we're going to play for you a few years ago, and I gave it to a singer called Ariana Grande.

'She sang it a few times, and now we're going to do our version of it for you - and if you can find some way to join in please do so. I stand with you, Manchester.'

In May 2017, after Ariana performed at Manchester Arena, Salman Abedi detonated a homemade explosive device, killing 23 people and injuring over 500, 59 of which were hospitalised.

Concert-goers, mainly children and young people, ran for their lives as the bomb detonated at the end of her performance, around 10.30pm.

Abedi, 22, used an explosive device packed with nuts and bolts to ensure maximum impact on his victims.

The detonation of the bomb managed to kill people standing up to 20 metres away, making it the deadliest UK terror attack since the July 7 bombings in London back in 2005.

After anti-terror police and paramedics flooded the scene, they found the injured scattered across the foyer.

In the wake of the devastation, Ariana spoke of her heartbreak and cancelled the entire European leg of her The Dangerous Woman Tour.

She returned to the stage to headline the One Love Manchester tribute concert at Old Trafford two weeks after the attack on June 4, 2017.

Performers including Justin Bieber, the Black Eyed Peas, Katie Perry, Pharrell Williams and Liam Gallagher joined her in paying an emotional tribute to the victims of the attack.

The concert is believed to have raised over £10million for the British Red Cross and Manchester Emergency Fund.
