U.S. pop singer Ariana Grande has paid a surprise visit to young fans who were injured in a suicide attack on a concert she gave in Manchester last month, posing with them for selfies and signing t-shirts.

On Friday night the American popstar surprised Jaden and the other youngsters at the hospital as they got ready for bed.

She brought the children presents and signed autographs during her ward visit.

Grande returned to Britain on Friday to lead an all-star benefit concert on Sunday and quickly headed for a hospital in the northern English city where numerous injured are being treated.

Jaden was one of at least 119 people injured when suicide attacker Salman Abedi detonated a device packed with shrapnel in the Manchester Arena foyer as people were leaving Miss Grande's gig.

Jaden's mother Sharon told the Manchester Evening News: 'Jaden was just sat there watching TV and she walked in.

"So happy she came i could burst!", he wrote. She was absolutely amazed!

United States pop singer Ariana Grande delights fan in hospital.

The concert was Grande's idea, to help the victims of the blast and to show defiance to terrorism.

Grande will be joined by the Black Eyed Peas, Robbie Williams, Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, Coldplay and other stars.

The £40 tickets to Sunday's charity show at the Old Trafford Cricket Ground were snapped up in less than 20 minutes when they went on sale but it has since emerged that people are looking to cash in on the tragedy by selling tickets online at inflated prices.

Live Nation said on Thursday, that girl group Little Mix has also been added to the show being held in honour of the Manchester bombing, that took place at Grande's concert in the city last week.
