Rita Ora, 29, will be cohosting the show alongside Davina McCall, Jonathan Ross and Ken Jeong. As a pro singer, Rita is well placed to analyse the voices of others.
The singer was born Rita Sahatçiu, in Kosovo. Her mother was a psychiatrist, while her father, Besnik Sahatçiu, owned a pub.
Rita’s family moved to the UK in 1991, so the singer was raised in Britain, growing up in swanky Notting Hill.
She attended Sylvia Young Theatre School, which teaches the performing arts to youth, and costs £14,280 a year from years 6 to 9 and £14,520 for years 10 and 11.
Those applying to the school must perform two acting pieces, a song, and dance, before the school decides whether to take them on.
The school has successfully turned out a number of major and minor stars.
Most notable among them include Amy Winehouse, Nicholas Hoult, and Gemma Collins.
Despite her first album “Ora” being released in 2012, Ora has only ever released one more, “Phoenix”, released in 2018.
Ora debuted at number one on the UK Albums Chart, but had mixed reviews and was the thirty-fifth best selling album of the year.
Phoenix’s best weekly chart position across the globe saw the album peak at number eight in Latvia.
In the UK it reached 11 and in the US only 79.
