Rita Ora becomes the serial celebrity lockdown flouter.

#SorryNotSorry! Rita Ora is under fire again for flouting lockdown rules, not once but twice. 

On November 21st, she flew by private jet to Egypt, to perform a private gig in Cairo (for which she was paid a six-figure sum.) She failed to follow government rules of self-isolating for 14 days on her return to the UK a day later. This was before throwing her big 30th birthday bash on November 28th. 

She paid a £10,000 fine for flouting lockdown rules, but
failed to mention that she had already flouted the rules a week earlier. Ms. Ora is either incredibly dense or incredibly attention-seeking. I'm going to put my money on both!

Rita issues second apology:
“I recently flew to Egypt to perform at a corporate event for a private company, where my travel party followed protocol and presented negative Covid tests upon entry, as required by Egyptian authorities. Upon my return to Britain, I should have followed government advice and isolated myself for the required period. As you know, I didn’t follow government advice and I apologise again, unreservedly. While I realise the apologetic words of a pop star might not carry much weight, especially one who has broken the rules like I have, I do realise some might seek to follow my example. My message to them is simple: please don’t. The guilt and shame I’ve carried this week for my mistake aren’t worth it. Instead, continue to listen to the government advice and the voices of the heroes of the NHS and take the required precautions.”
She also said she has taken a subsequent coronavirus test, which again was negative.
