Louis Tomlinson surprised Manchester terror attack survivor Freya Lewis at the NHS Heroes Awards 2018.
A clip from the the show which is set to air on ITV on Monday night shows the former One Direction star surprise 15-year-old Freya as he presents her with the Young Fundraiser Award, after raising over £40,000 for Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital.
Freya sadly lost her best friend during the tragic attack last year and she couldn’t quite believe her eyes when she sees 26-year-old Louis walking towards her.
She was on stage with Paul O’Grady and Kym Marsh and Paul tells her that it’s Louis who is going to present her with the aware to which Freya says: “Oh, my God!”
The X Factor star walked out and gives Freya a hug before acknowledging her impressive achievements.
Louis said: “The VT was really moving, but what I think is clearly remarkable is your strength.”
He added: “To go through such tragedy and to raise that amount of money and have that level of endeavour is amazing. It really touched me with that story, so yeah…I just want to give you another hug!”
Tuesday marks one whole year since the attack which took place during a Ariana Grande concert. The singer has recently opened up about the tragic incident, calling it the “absolute worst of humanity.”
Speaking to TIME magazine, Ariana said: “There are so many people who have suffered such loss and pain.
“The processing part is going to take forever. I don’t want to give it that much power [by talking about it]. Something so negative. It’s the absolute worst of humanity.
“That’s why I did my best to react the way I did. The last thing I would ever want is for my fans to see something like that happen and think it won. Music is supposed to be the safest thing in the world.
“I wish there was more that I could fix. You think with time it’ll become easier to talk about. Or you’ll make peace with it. But every day I wait for that peace to come and it’s still very painful.”
