The 10th victim of the Manchester Arena bombing has been named as Martyn Hett. 

The 29-year-old was confirmed to have died by his boyfriend Russell Hayward, who called him "iconic and beautiful."

Hett, a PR manager from Stockport who won Come Dine With Me at one point, had been at the Ariana Grande concert with his friend, Stuart Aspinall, but had become separated just before the attack.

Aspinall had launched a social media campaign alongside Hett's friends and family to try to find him. 

A total of 22 people died and dozens were injured after Salman Abedi detonated a suicide explosive as people were leaving Manchester Arena following the concert.
