Ariana Grande's One Last Time has reached number two in the Official Singles Chart after it was re-released as a charity single.

The track, originally released in 2014, achieved 2.9 million streams and 61,000 downloads.

Most proceeds from the song will go to the We Love Manchester fund for the victims of the Manchester Arena attack.

Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee and Justin Bieber's Despacito held onto the top spot for a fifth week.

Grande's One Love Manchester concert last weekend was attended by 50,000 music fans and watched by millions worldwide.

Liam Gallagher, who also performed at the event, saw his solo single Wall of Glass enter the chart at number 21.

Oasis' classic song Don't Look Back In Anger - which Coldplay's Chris Martin performed with Grande at the gig - reached number 25. It is the first first time it has been in the top 40 since May 1996.
