Rita Ora has reportedly been spoken to by both her parents about her actions regarding breaking lockdown restrictions after it was revealed she had a party with more than 30 people last month.

The singer-songwriter was spotted on a walk with her father, Besnik Sahatçiu, looking rather expressionless as the pair spoke, not to mention having, apparently, been given "a real ticking off" from her mother, Vera Sahatiçiu.

Rita publicly apologised for her actions after she and pals, including Cara Delevingne, were spotted at a secret birthday celebration, and took to Instagram to tell fans that she was "deeply sorry for breaking the rules."

She said, "I understand that this puts people at risk.

“This was a serious and inexcusable error of judgement. Given the restrictions, I realise how irresponsible these actions were and I take full responsibility."

Since then, Rita has reportedly been charged a £10,000 fine by the council, which she voluntarily paid.

Tommy Fury Love Island1 of 10

2019: Tommy Fury holds Ellie-Belly

This was totally the cutest thing ever. Love-struck Tommy Fury held on to Molly-Mae Hague's beloved Ellie-Belly teddy bear while he revealed to the Love Island group that he was choosing to "stick" with Molly, instead of "recoupling" with a different girl. And Molly-Mae was SO relieved that she fell to the floor crying. The whole scene had our hearts in our throats.

2019: Olivia Bentley and Digby Edgley's post break-up chat

Usually-cool-as-ice Liv Bentley crumbled into tears after revealing to her ex-beau, Digby Edgley, how "hard it is" to witness him partying all over the city on their friends' social media accounts. She even confessed to hiding herself away in the countryside. Hun, checking what an ex is up to while you're in the middle of nowhere is not the way to deal with a split. Block, delete, move on – and tell him to get his own friends.

Love Island Amy Hart3 of 10

2019: Amy Hart leaves the Love Island villa

Air hostess Amy Hart's heart plummeted to the floor when Curtis Pritchard admitted there was something missing in their Love Island romance and broke off their relationship. Totally infatuated with ballroom dancer Curtis, Amy decided it'd be best for both of them if she took flight (sorry, not sorry), enabling her to heal her shattered self and for Curtis to move on. Bet she didn't think he'd jump straight to Maura Higgins, though… ouch.

2018: Yazmin Oukhellou has heart-to-heart with her mum

Such a touching moment between Yazmin Oukhellou and her mum. During a heart-to-heart conversation, Yaz opened up about how alone she felt. Choked up and fighting back tears, Yaz's mum went on to tell her daughter – in her Essex twang – how she'll support her during the difficult time to get back to "how I know ya". Just proves that no matter your age, your mum is always going to be there for you.

2017: Megan McKenna rages at Pete Wicks

Try to stop your eyes popping out from your sockets with this eye-opening scene. Megan McKenna truly went in at boyfriend-at-the-time Pete Wicks. Screaming, shouting, ranting and hissing, Meg really kicked off following Pete's dirty sexting scandal. Even the producers had to get involved to stop the altercation turning physical. Sh-t.

2017: Kimmy K sobs over Kayne's meltdown

Sobbing uncontrollably, Kim Kardashian-West couldn't catch her breath when she learnt of hubby Kanye West's mental breakdown, resulting in him being hospitalised. Not long after her own unnerving Parisian robbery, Kimmy K was understandably still shaken by events – and this was just the cherry on top. Emotions came bubbling to the surface in an instant.

2016: CBB's Tiffany Pollard mistakenly believes David Guest is dead

It was sad times for Angie Bowie (and the world), when legendary artist David Bowie passed away, but Celebrity Big Brother co-star Tiffany Pollard really got the wrong end of the stick upon hearing the news. After Angie told Tiffany that "David's dead", the American reality star assumed she was on about fellow CBB contestant David Guest. Hysterical, Tiff goes on to spread the CONFIDENTIAL word that their housemate died from cancer. With all that panting, raving and swearing that ensues, you'd think that it was Tiffany who suffered a personal loss…

Nadiya Hussain8 of 10

2015: Nadiya Hussain wins The Great British Bake Off

The Great British Bake Off is one sweet treat to watch on TV, and the moment when Nadiya Hussain won the competition was truly the icing on the cake. Fairly timid, and noticeably lacking confidence in her own abilities, it was so wonderful to see her gain the recognition she deserved. Delivering her lovely buns, raspberry millefeuilles and triple-tiered lemon drizzle wedding cake, you can bet that was one tasty win.

2013: Sandro Masmanidi's backstage meltdown on Project Runway

Drama queen Sandro Masmanidi just could NOT believe that the judges didn't give him the constructive feedback he was craving on his bow-inspired gown (FYI, fellow contestant Helen Castillo had just got ripped to pieces and Sandro was declared safe). Furious, the hot-head snatched the microphone away from this clothes, stormed out the studio, pulled down a curtain, pushed over a mannequin and put his middle finger up at the camera crew. Needless to say, he wasn't welcomed back on to the show.

Charlotte Crosby Geordie Shore10 of 10

2013: Geordie Shore’s Charlotte tells Gary that she loves him

Oh, the embarrassment. To be vulnerable and admit to the person who you're seeing that you love them… only for it not to be returned. Eesh. Now, that's torture. Poor Charlotte Crosby has been trying to win over Gary Beadle for ages… and just when she thought the pair were moving forward. THUMP. Rejected, once again. Wine, anyone?

It was also revealed that Rita broke COVID restrictions a second time by failing to isolate after she returned to the UK from Egypt last month.

Now, according to The Sun, the 30-year-old went out on a walk with her father to discuss what had happened.

A source told the publication, "Rita knows she’s let her fans down massively and feels a huge weight of responsibility on her shoulders. Her parents have been the latest to step in and have words with her."

They continued, "Rita is heartbroken that she’s caused so much pain and disappointment to her fans — let alone her family.

“She is incredibly close to Vera and Besnik and has taken their advice on board. She has learnt from this.

This update on the former Voice UK judge comes not long since it was revealed how she gets her flawless skin. Great segue that, eh?

Rita uses the Foreo UFO 2 device, a skincare tool that uses LED light, thermo-therapy, cyro-therapy and advanced T-sonic pulsations for the ultimate, professional-level at-home facial treatment.

Sounds wow-worthy, right? Well, the UFO 2 doesn't come cheap at £249, but we put the heat shopping team to the test and we reckon it's worth the £££.

Shopping editor Aimee Jakes said, "My routine can take the best part of an afternoon on a Sunday. But, using this for just two minutes left my skin looking the best it's ever looked."
