In May 2017, after Ariana Grande performed at Manchester Arena, Salman Abedi detonated a homemade explosive device, killing 23 people and injuring over 500, 59 of which were hospitalised.

Concert-goers, mainly children and young people, ran for their lives as the bomb detonated at the end of her performance, around 10.30pm.

Abedi, 22, used an explosive device packed with nuts and bolts to ensure maximum impact on his victims.

Holly survived the horrific incident but it is now reliant on her wheelchair.

‘What these people did, they’re cowards, and the fact that you can come on stage and do what you did and make such a positive statement with your friends, I’m very proud of you. In fact I salute you.’
