All sponsorship and advertising revenue generated from the show – estimated at more than £3m – will be donated by ITV to the DEC appeal.

Cabello, who rose to fame as a member of girl group Fifth Harmony before launching a successful solo career, said: “My heart breaks for the people of Ukraine.

“As refugees from Ukraine join millions of other displaced people around the world, we all have a responsibility. One of the greatest needs is raising funds for organizations that can serve these communities directly, so we are focusing our efforts on doing this as quickly as possible.”

Scottish singer Sande said: “I will sing to try to help every person who is forced to flee their homes and in solidarity with those who face racial discrimination even in this humanitarian crisis.

“No one should be denied access to assistance, assistance and the right to safely cross borders, and I welcome the opportunity to support the DEC’s appeal to help all those whose lives have been impacted by the conflict.”

Porter said he was “grateful to be able to raise my voice in the chorus of peace,” adding, “Together we can show our support for those who are saddened by current world events.”

At the event, Global will also host a live broadcast from backstage with a show being broadcast on its Heart and Capital networks.

Concert For Ukraine will be broadcast live on ITV and STV and online on ITV Hub and STV Player on Tuesday 29 March.
