The show is set to be hosted by Roman Kemp, Marvin Humes and Emma Bunton.

Cabello said: “My heart is breaking for the people of Ukraine. As refugees from Ukraine join millions of other displaced people around the globe, we all have a responsibility. One of the biggest needs is to get funds to organisations who can serve these communities directly, so we’re focusing our efforts on doing that as quickly as we can.”

Russian president Vladimir Putin began his military invasion of Ukraine on 24 February. Cities in the country have suffered mass destruction and hundreds of thousands of Ukrainians have fled the country.

Sheeran - who is currently caught up in a copyright lawsuit at the High Court over his song 'Shape Of You' - did not release a statement.

Sande commented: “I will be singing to try to help every human being forced to flee their home and in solidarity with those being racially discriminated against even within this humanitarian crisis. Nobody should be refused access to relief, aid and the right to cross the border to safety, and I’m pleased for the chance to support the DEC’s appeal to help all people whose lives have been affected by the conflict.”

And Gregory Porter added: "So thankful to be able to raise my voice in the chorus of peace. Together we can show our support for those that are sadly affected by the current world's events.”

The broadcast will combine musical performances with short films recognising the ongoing relief efforts and the difficulties faced by those affected by the conflict.
