ITV announces plans for a music event called Concert For Ukraine for broadcast on Tuesday, March 29.

ITV has announced that it will broadcast a huge music event called Concert For Ukraine later this month.

The event, which will also air on STV in Scotland, will aim to raise funds for the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) to directly help Ukrainians affected by Russia's invasion of their country.

A blockbuster lineup of musicians are expected to perform at the show, which will be produced by Livewire Pictures in conjunction with Global and Marks & Spencer.

Katie Rawcliffe, ITV's head of entertainment commissioning, said: "Music is a very powerful tool when it comes to showing support and solidarity, and at ITV we are proud and privileged to be working... on such an important and necessary fundraising event."

Concert for Ukraine will be staged on Tuesday, March 29, with performers, presenters and venues due to be confirmed in the coming days.
