Sir Tom Jones and rapper P Diddy are among the artists who have joined the bill for the Princess Diana memorial concert at Wembley Stadium on 1 July.

Singer Will Young and Canadian star Nelly Furtado have also been added to the line-up at the event which will celebrate the Princess's life.

Roger Hodgson of the band Supertramp - said to have been one of Diana's favourites - will also perform.

Sir Elton John, Take That and Lily Allen have already been confirmed.

'Best birthday present'

Kanye West, Duran Duran, Status Quo, Rod Stewart, Pharrell Williams and Joss Stone are to appear at the concert as well.

A performance by the English National Ballet and a medley of Andrew Lloyd Webber's music will also be on the running order.

It has been organised by Prince William and Prince Harry to mark the 10th anniversary of their mother's death.

1 July would have been Diana's 46th birthday, and the concert has been described by the princes as "the best birthday present she ever had".

They are expected to appear on stage during the five-hour event.

The first 22,500 tickets for the concert sold out in minutes when they went on sale in December, and a further 10,000 tickets were released in April.

The show will also be broadcast live to millions of television viewers around the world.
