Speaking to Capital’s Siân Welby and Heart's Dev Griffin backstage about being asked to perform at Concert for Ukraine, Anne-Marie said: “I think we all want to help as much as possible and sometimes you feel helpless...

“But hopefully me being here in some way helps raise a lot of money."

Explaining how it was hard to decide which song to perform this evening, she continued: “It was quite hard. Most of my songs are about cheating ex-boyfriends which I thought wouldn't really fit."

“I’ve got maybe two I thought would fit this, and one is obviously 'Beautiful' and I just feel like even in the video I did – it was about a Syrian refugee that came over to the UK – it just feels right, so hopefully people will like it," she added.

Anne-Marie followed performances by fellow artists including Snow Patrol and Emeli Sandé.

Ed Sheeran, Camila Cabello, Becky Hill and many more are also set to perform later this evening.
