Rita finds her flirting Voice

RITA ORA has said her flirting on The Voice is harmless – and a way of making contestants feel comfortable.

The singer said that no-one ever made her feel at ease when she was trying to make it.

In the first episode of the new BBC One series, Rita swoons when she sees one contestant, and calls him “really hot” and “handsome”.

The star, 24, said that her flirting was “always harmless”.

She added: “I like to make people feel comfortable, regardless of the situation.” Rita, who replaces KYLIE MINOGUE as the only female coach, added: “No one really did that for me and I wish they did, so it’s about cracking the ice so they can do what they came here to do, which was to blow us away.”

DAVID WALLIAMS has posted a witty response to his wife’s smouldering Calvin Klein ad with JUSTIN BIEBER.

The black and white ads feature model LARA STONE sitting astride the topless, 20-year-old pop star, and the pair embracing, with their hands all over each other. Comedian David posted the shot of Lara, who appears to be topless, wrapping her arms around a bare-chested Justin, but this time with the cheeky message: “Why has someone photoshopped @justinbieber’s head onto what is clearly my body?”

Another version later appeared on David’s Twitter page, with the funnyman’s face photoshopped on top of Justin’s body.

“@davidwalliams how about this version?” twitter user @BeKindAndFair wrote.And the Britain’s Got Talent judge happily retweeted the hilarious black and white image.

MILEY CYRUS also had fun mocking the ad, posting a version with her face, frowning, to look like she was taking Lara’s place.

OLIVIA COLMAN is worried that viewers are fed up with having to see her cry on TV all the time.

The Broadchurch star has become known for taking on emotional, weepy roles in recent years, in dramas such as The Accused, The Dilemma and film Tyrannosaur, but has said she feels she could have taken it too far.

She told Vogue: “I have a sneaking suspicion that audiences have seen me crying a little bit too often in the past couple of years. And if people get really fed up with me, then I won’t get more work. And if I can’t do what I love, then I will shrivel up and die.

“If something touches me, I cry. That’s it. I’m a bit raw, a bit rubbish really. Often a director will say to me, ’I don’t think this is a scene where your character cries’. And all I can say is, ’Good luck with that!’.”

ELLIE GOULDING has unveiled her sensual new track for the Fifty Shades Of Grey movie – Love Me Like You Do.

The 28-year-old British singer has recorded a power ballad for the soundtrack of the highly anticipated movie adaptation of the hit erotic novel.The film is due to hit cinemas for Valentine’s Day, and stars JAMIE DORNAN as S&M-loving billionaire Christian Grey and DAKOTA JOHNSON

as Anastasia Steele, the student he seduces.

Ellie posted the audio to Love Me Like You Do online, with artwork from the Fifty Shade’s poster, and promised a video is on its way.

The lyrics include: “You’re the light, you’re the night/You’re the colour of my blood.

“You’re the cure/ you’re the pain/ you’re the only thing I want to touch/ Never knew that it/ could mean so much/ You’re the fear/ I don’t care/ ’Cause I’ve never been so high.”
