The sun is finally beaming in the UK and Rita Ora is making the most of it, sunbathing in her back garden wearing a red lace bra.

The 29-year-old How To Be Lonely singer has been updating her Instagram account with a plethora of snaps since lockdown began, with Rita thought to be isolating in The Cotswolds.

“Can’t find my bikini” she captioned the snap, which shows her instead lapping up the rays in a red lace bra with her purple corduroy trousers zipped down.

Fans flocked to the comments section to tell Rita that she looks ‘stunning’ in the photos and “beautiful”.

The snaps came just one day after the singer took to her Instagram account to thank her fans for making her the 7th most played UK artist of 2019.

“I really appreciate all the ongoing support for nearly 10 years!!! Thank you for keeping listening and dancing to my music. I see you all and your messages, another day in the studio today and I have more new music coming soon,” she wrote.

Back in April, Rita came under fire for appearing to violate coronavirus restrictions in the UK.

The popstar had been a vocal proponent of the global campaign to keep people at home to slow the spread of COVID-19, but angry locals claim she has bunkered down in a country home to work on an album in the midst of the lockdown.

The star initially shared snaps of her country stay on Instagram, but has since deleted all the images, though some of the photos remain visible on Facebook.

The singer is thought to be staying in a rented holiday home in the UK town of The Cotswolds on a pre-booked getaway to work on her album.

Locals reported spotting the singer out on bike rides with friends, and one even said heavy-handed security scared her child as she walked near the property on a public footpath.

“Surely she should respect the rules and have stayed in f****** London?” one local wrote on a community Facebook page.

Photos no longer visible on the star’s Instagram showed her enjoying the country air on a daily walk, acknowledging she was ‘grateful’ for the access to plenty of space during the lockdown.
