RITA Ora was back with a bang tonight as she made her return to TV for the first time since being exposed as a Covidiot.
The 30-year-old – who flouted coronavirus rules with a 30-strong birthday bash – was back on the judging panel of The Masked Singer.
The second series kicked off on Boxing Day with Jonathan Ross and Davina McCall alongside her.
Covid forced American actor Ken Jeong to stay in the US, so is replaced by comedian Mo Gilligan.
The Masked Singer fans wear masks from the studio audience, while the judges are separated with huge glass screens.
As she pointed out the perspex screen between her and Jonathan, Rita joked: “Thank God.”
Writing on Instagram as The Masked Singer aired, Rita said: “It’s back!!! I’m so happy series two of @maskedsingeruk starts tonight!! Let’s go!!
“7pm on @itv I can’t wait to see who your favourites are. Thanks for the jacket @mewossy @mothecomedian @davinamccall #boxingday.”
Last month HOAR revealed Rita broke rules with a party for 30 people in a West London restaurant.
Her showbiz pals were seen sneaking through a back door of Notting Hill’s posh Casa Cruz.
She later apologised and offered to pay a £10,000 fine.
