Newly single Ariana Grande has confirmed the date of her BBC TV special.
The show will feature an interview with the US star by Davina McCall as well as performances of new material from Ariana’s latest album, Sweetener.
An all-female orchestra will provide backing.
The announcement reads: ‘UK babes, I’m excited to announce that my BBC special we shot in London will be airing on Nov 1 at 8pm on BBC1 thank you to my band, my MD, our background singers, incredible conductor steve sidwell, and this stunning orchestra (all girls, werk) i had the honor of performing wit.’
‘i loved these arrangements so much. thank u to my babes in the audience who made this such a fun, comfortable experience. miss u.’
The post comes just days after Ariana announced a break from social media, citing the pressures around her break-up from Saturday Night Live star Pete Davidson. She said on Tuesday: "Time to say bye bye again to the internet for jus a lil bit.
"It’s hard not to bump into news n stuff that I’m not trying to see rn [right now]," she continued.
"It’s very sad and we’re all tryin very hard to keep goin. Love u and thank u for bein here always.”
In recent days, the tattoo of Pete’s on her finger has been covered by a plaster. For his part, Pete’s ‘bunny ears’ tattoo that commemorated their whirlwind romance has been covered by another tattoo – a large black heart.
When the special was first announced, Davina told the BBC: "Since I’ve been asked to do this show… I have been worried that someone is going to call up and tell me they’ve made a mistake and chosen the wrong presenter, because this seems just too good to be true.
" Ariana Grande is such an incredible talent. She’s very funny and incredibly kind and has achieved so much already in her career. I’m really excited about talking to her and, of course, hearing some of her amazing music."
The TV special will air on BBC on Thursday November 1st at 8pm. This will the first time the 25-year-old star has appeared on BBC One since last year’s One Love Manchester benefit concert.
