Lewis Capaldi and Rita Ora team up for late-night recording session

THEY’RE two of the UK’s hottest music stars, so I’m sure Rita Ora and Lewis Capaldi getting together in the studio will whet the appetite of millions of fans.

I can reveal the pair met for a late-night recording session in what would be the collaboration of the year.

Rita turned up to the studio in North West London wearing a very revealing dress under a blazer and Lewis was later seen leaving, getting into a taxi and looking wrapped up.

A music source said: “This could be the making of something quite special. As far as the UK is concerned they’re two of the biggest names in music who are making songs right now.

“The meeting happened by chance but that didn’t mean they couldn’t jam together.”

This wouldn’t be the first time Rita and Lewis have worked together. The Someone You Loved crooner wrote a song for the former X Factor judge, How To Be Lonely, which was released in March.

Both are working on new music, with Lewis under pressure to try to match the success of his debut album Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent, the biggest-selling record in the UK last year.

I previously told how he was writing more heartache songs, with one about his latest ex- girlfriend Catherine Halliday, who he split from last month.

Lewis has revealed that the new album will not be released until next year, though he has written plenty of new tracks already.

The Scottish singer confirmed from his homeland in July: “I’m working on the next album at the minute.

“Restrictions of lockdown are being lifted here so I think I’m going to be able to go to London in the next two weeks to start recording it properly.”

He added: “I’ve got loads of songs done for it. I’ve written about 30 so far in the course of lockdown — it’s been a fruitful and a busy pandemic for me, but four of them are good. There are four songs that I’m pretty pleased with.”

Rita posted a number of sultry snaps of her sexy outfit on Instagram and a video of a champagne bottle being opened in a studio. She wrote: “Studio to quick shoot, back to studio.”

As a huge fan of each of these stars, both musically and personally, I’m salivating at the thought of them doing more work together.

They also love a night out, so hopefully we’ll see them leading each other astray.

And after the 2020 we’ve had, two huge pop stars getting together is exactly what we need plenty more of.

Boyleling point

TO say I’m envious of Lewis’s evening with Rita is an understatement.

I was lucky enough to spend an afternoon in her company last May, during a date of her Phoenix World Tour in Birmingham, and I can confirm: Rita is as fun as she is beautiful.

These two are a couple of the most exciting British music stars right now, so I’m not surprised they’ve got together again.

Lewis wrote Rita’s hit How To Be Lonely, and it was one of my favourite songs this summer.

So knowing they’ve spent a few hours in studios next to one another, conjuring up some more magic, is music to my ears.

I know the whole of the biz – just like me – is waiting with bated breath to see what Lewis comes up with for his second record.

And if it’s got a sprinkling of Rita Ora on the side, I think it could be bette

Rich pickings for Rihanna

SHE sang about diamonds in 2012 and now Rihanna can afford plenty of them.

The superstar has been named as one of America’s richest self-made women.

Rihanna, who is actually from Barbados, has made millions from her cosmetics and clothing collections, as well as music.

She is ranked 33rd on the annual rich list from Forbes magazine.

The singer is worth more than £460million, while Kardashians’ momager Kris Jenner – who is No92 on the list – is worth more than £145million.

Lend us a tenner please, ladies.

Lila models for mum

THE apple doesn’t fall far from the tree when it comes to Kate Moss’s daughter Lila.

But it’s not just their physical similarities that bind the model mother and daughter duo.

Kate has grand plans for 18-year-old Lila. She will be putting her front and centre of her fashion brand Rockeens. Lila’s dad is media boss Jefferson Hack, who Kate broke up with in 2004.

The Sun revealed last August that Kate planned to launch a clothing brand – and now Lila will be at the forefront of it.

A fashion insider said: “Kate has been working really hard on Rockeens for more than a year and has been building up the brand behind the scenes. She always wanted Lila to be involved but as time has gone on, Kate has started using her as a muse.

“The plan now is to style the whole brand around Lila. The clothing label is aimed at women in their teens and early twenties.

The plan now is to style the whole brand around Lila. The clothing label is aimed at women in their teens and early twenties.

“Kate sees Lila as a UK version of Kendall Jenner and wants to help build and guide her career. They are really close and Kate is very protective of her daughter so will have control over every aspect.

" Kate has taken her time with the brand and hasn’t rushed the launch because she wants it to be absolutely perfect. Clothing samples have been shown now so it’s definitely moving in the right direction and the label is expected to finally start up in the New Year.”

I thought that beauty was in the eye of the beholder, but it turns out it is in the eye of your rich and influential mother.

Getting wiggy with Kim

KIM Petras has “throne” caution to the wind in this regal outfit, as she looks fit to be a member of the Royal Family . . . about 300 years ago.

The Malibu singer dressed like an 18th-century aristocrat with this huge wig and puffy dress. In the shoot for Hunger magazine, she told how she had taken a break from social media to prepare for her upcoming album.

In the mag, out from October 22, she said: “I shut off the world in the studio. I take my social media off my phone when I write. I can’t let that influence my work.”

The new record follows debut album Clarity last year. She said: “On every project I show a different side of myself. I change all the time.”

If this picture is anything to go by it’ll be a classy album.

Bedtime a drag for Harry

WE’VE heard the tale of Princess Diana being snuck into the Vauxhall Tavern gay bar by Freddie Mercury and Kenny Everett in the Eighties.

And it seems for Prince Harry it’s a case of like mother, like son. The royal partied with drag queen Jodie Harsh in what she said were his “wild days”. She told Gaydio: “I have been out with Prince Harry. It was fun, really fun.”

Asked what time they went to bed, Jodie joked: “Don’t know if we did.” Ooh err.

Foxy Roxy

ROXY Horner has earned the title of Queen Of Hearts having tamed lothario Jack Whitehall.

The model dressed up in this all-in-one outfit revealing a heart-shaped hole over her chest.

She had been out without her funnyman boyfriend for a pal’s birthday at private members’ club Home House, in West London.

Roxy posted this snap on Instagram, saying: “If this year has taught me anything, it is to cherish moments like these, when I get to be with the people I care about.”

Jack and Roxy have been dating since March, spent lockdown together and recently went on holiday to Greece. It comes after the stand-up admitted he “messed up” his chance of marrying his ex Gemma Chan.

But by the looks of Roxy in this snap, I imagine he’s over it.

Shawn proves a bit dopey

A CELEBRITY missing their interview call time is nothing new in the world of showbiz. But to do a complete no-show is really bad form.

So I felt for Greg James yesterday when he was snubbed live on his Radio 1 Breakfast Show by Shawn Mendes.

He was expecting the singer 30 minutes into his stint but was left in the lurch after the star, who is based in America, nodded off.

After admitting Shawn had not called in, Greg told listeners: “We have nothing planned from now until 9am, so we might need some ideas.”

After filling for the rest of the show, Greg couldn’t hide his annoyance.

He told listeners: “If anyone has switched on, Shawn Mendes was meant to be on live at 7:30.

“His team in LA said Shawn is so excited to be on and all of that . . . You had one job mate. Just be on the phone.”

Kammy is back for Chris-mas

IF you thought Chris Kamara releasing a Christmas album was “Unbelievable Jeff!” then you weren’t alone. But he sleighed the charts last December when Here’s To Christmas put the Sky Sports footie pundit in the Top Ten of the Album Chart.

So now he is releasing his second festive record, . . . And A Happy New Year, which is out next month. It will feature him covering classics White Christmas, The Bleak Midwinter and Blue Christmas as well as – get this – WIZARD’s I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday.

Kammy, whose birthday is on Christmas Day, said: “I was blown away by the reception to Here’s To Christmas, and when I was asked to record another I just had to. I hope that with. . . And A Happy New Year, especially this year, I can help give people a little bit of festive cheer, and something to sing along to.”

It’s top of my Christmas list.
