Ariana Grande’s gay fan confirmed dead


Tributes are being paid to a gay man killed during the terrorist attack at Ariana Grande’s show in Manchester. Martyn Hett, 29, has been confirmed dead by his family and friends. Posts from family, friends and worried strangers had been shared tens of thousands of times in a bid to track him down after the attack. The bomb is reported to have detonated at 10:33pm in the foyer of the venue, outside where the concert was happening. 20 minutes earlier Martyn had left the concert space to visit the bar, near to where the bomb detonated. His brother Dan says he is left heartbroken with his sibling’s death. Martyn had been due to embark on the trip of a lifetime this week, travelling the US for two months. Days ago he shared a photo of his leaving party ahead of his new adventure in America, where he had tickets to attend the Wendy Williams show and join a meet-up of Mariah Carey fans. The 29-year-old worked in public relations, and had a strong following on social media, becoming well-known for his love of soap opera Coronation Street. He was a former winner of Come Dine With Me and a graduate of both the University of Liverpool and University of Arts London.
