Ariana Grande is seen by many as an honorary Mancunian, says the leader of Manchester City Council.

Ariana Grande is to get honorary citizenship of Manchester under plans put forward by the city council.
The council is proposing a new system to recognise outstanding contributions to the city, reports BBC.
The US singer is in line to be the first recipient for organising the One Love Manchester concert in aid of victims of the bomb attack at her gig, in which 22 people died.
An event to mark ‘selfless acts’ after the blast is to be held, too.
Ariana Grande performs during the One Love Manchester benefit concert under the proposals for the new scheme, honorary citizenship of Manchester could be granted to those from outside Greater Manchester.
Council leader Sir Richard Leese, said many people would already consider Grande to be ‘an honorary Mancunian’.
