‘Tough day’ for Rita Ora as she is treated in hospital

Singer RITA ORA was briefly treated in hospital on the same day a man was found guilty of burgling her London home.

The singer told fans she had experienced a “tough day” and shared a photograph of her lying in a hospital bed with a drip in her arm.

Charaf Elmoudden, 26, was jailed for five years after he went to the singer’s four-bedroom house in north-west London on November 28 and made off with a stash of expensive shoes, phones, computers, and a designer bag.

Ora was reportedly suffering from exhaustion, and hours later tweeted the picture with the caption: “Today was pretty tough but I’m getting through it thank you all my fans and friends for the support! I love you!”

She also shared a close-up photograph on Snapchat of an IV in her arm.

JUDI DENCH has been given an unusual 81st birthday present by her daughter — her first ever tattoo.

The actress had the words “carpe diem” inked on her wrist as a gift from her actress daughter FINTY WILLIAMS.

She told Surrey Life magazine: “That’s my motto: Seize the day. Finty gave it to me for my 81st birthday — she’s wonderful with surprises.

“Mind you the company of A Winter’s Tale, which I was doing at the time, used to say that it said fish of the day.”

The former James Bond star previously told Good Housekeeping she was contemplating getting an Indian symbol tattooed and has also joked that she would like to have Hollywood producer HARVEY WEINSTEIN’s name inked on her bottom.

Actor ZAC EFRON has said he wants to play an ageing rock star so he can gain more than two stone in weight.

The Hollywood heart-throb said building his physique for the upcoming Baywatch film had taken “a lot of hard work” and he was unsure if he would maintain it.

Speaking at the Los Angeles premiere of his new film Mike And Dave Need Wedding Dates, Efron said: “I would love to gain 30lbs and play an ageing rock star. That would be an awesome transformation.

“I want to be honest with my characters. Otherwise, I’m just going to stay healthy fit.”

Efron, 28, has been sporting blond highlights in his hair for his role in Baywatch, the big-screen adaptation of the classic 1990s television series.
