Despite Rita Ora put on a dazzling display in a red suit for the Valentine’s Day-themed show many weren’t impressed with the show giving her publicity. Here’s why :
Rita Ora threw a lockdown-flouting 30th birthday party on November 28 at the exclusive Casa Cruz restaurant in Notting Hill – but was caught. People were enraged at the news of her breaking lockdown rules and putting a lot of people at risk just for a party. The party came amid another rule break, as Rita Ora had previously flown by private jet to Cairo on November 21, and failed to isolate upon her return to the UK. Allegedly, the star is now in Australia as she prepares to start work on The Voice.
Rita Ora performed her new single, Bang Bang, on ITV’s Dancing On Ice on Sunday, and although some praised her for her talent and all-red look, most have been expecting her to be dealt with properly.

Can the #MaskedSingerUK just replace Rita Ora with Nicola Roberts next series pretty pretty please 🙏

Yet fans of the show were sure to hit Twitter to slam the channel’s decision to feature the star – who is still relatively freshly embroiled in scandal following her lockdown-flouting 30th birthday party just weeks ago.
There was also confusion given that Rita Ora is currently in Australia, with Dancing On Ice being a live show and hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield passing the song off as if it were in real-time.

All of this has also brought back other issues people have had with Rita Ora. Past gossip and failed publicity stunts were talked about as more people found out about Rita Ora’s disregard for the rules.
