Rita breaks lockdown rules

Rita’s trip follows shortly after she faced criticism for failing to follow the UK government’s quarantine rules.

It came after the musician travelled back from Egypt in November and failed to self-isolate on her return.

Apologising in a statement, she said: “I recently flew to Egypt to perform at a corporate event for a private company.

“My travel party followed protocol and presented negative Covid tests upon entry, as required by Egyptian authorities.”

Furthermore, Rita added: “I should have followed Government advice and isolated myself for the required period. As you know, I didn’t follow Government advice. I apologise again, unreservedly.”
