Stars including Lady Gaga, Coldplay, Gary Barlow and JLS have come together to support Children In Need at a special concert in Manchester.

Children In Need Rocks, which has taken place at the MEN Arena, has been organised by Take That's Gary Barlow.

The event, which was screened live on BBC One, follows a previous event at the Royal Albert Hall in 2009.

"When they asked this year I said I'll definitely do it but I think we need to move it out of London," Barlow said.

Cheryl Cole was due to duet with Barlow but was forced to pull out due to a sore throat.

The line-up also included Michael Buble, Elbow, Hugh Laurie and N-Dubz.
