One Love concert the most watched on iPlayer in June

By Francesca Gosling

The One Love Manchester concert was the most-watched BBC programme on iPlayer in June, beating both the general election and Doctor Who.

More than two million people watched the show via the online streaming service as it was broadcast live on June 4, with stars such as Niall Horan, Miley Cyrus and Justin Bieber joining Ariana Grande to pay tribute to the victims of the Manchester Arena bombing.

It beat audience numbers for the first hours of general election coverage four days later.

Releasing the figures, the BBC said June proved to be the biggest month for live programme requests on iPlayer (21%) since the Olympics last August.
