Britain’s Got Talent final moved to Saturday to avoid clash with Ariana Grande charity concert
The Britain’s Got Talent final has been rescheduled for Saturday to avoid clashing with Ariana Grande’s ‘One Love Manchester’ benefit concert.
The final was originally scheduled to air on Sunday, but will now take place on Saturday, June 3 at 7.30pm on ITV.
An ITV spokesperson said: “Ariana Grande’s ‘One Love Manchester’ benefit concert is bringing artists and the public together, and will raise funds for the Red Cross’s Manchester Emergency Fund.
“ITV and Britain’s Got Talent have no desire to distract from this important cause, so we have taken the decision to move the Britain’s Got Talent final from Sunday night.”
The British Soap Awards will now air on Tuesday, June 6 at 8pm instead of Saturday, to make room for Britain’s Got Talent.
Pop singer Ariana Grande announced a charity concert to raise money for the victims of the horrific Manchester attack earlier this week.
The concert will feature the likes of Justin Bieber, Coldplay, Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, Pharrell Williams, Take That, Niall Horan and Usher, all of whom have agreed to waive their fee in order to perform.
‘One Love Manchester’ will take place at Emirates Old Trafford cricket ground on Sunday, June 4 and will be broadcast by the BBC.
