Rita Ora Braves The Dawn As She Arrives To Co-Host Breakfast Show

She probably thought it seemed like a good idea at the time, hosting a radio show with one of her mates – but Rita Ora looked like she was regretting her decision as she arrived at Radio 1 this morning.

The singer hid behind sunglasses as she made her way inside the studio in central London, even though it was still dark at about 5.30 this morning, but managed a smile for the cameras, albeit a bleary one!

And although it was a cold and windy morning today, that didn’t seem to bother her as she wore a black coat and over-the-knee white boots over her bare legs.

She was followed by Nick Grimshaw who was better dressed for the weather in a hooded coat and looked a lot more awake than his pop star friend, but he’s more than used to these very early alarm calls by now.

Nick probably thought it might be a struggle getting her up at stupid o’clock, so, to make sure his celebrity co-host was there on time, he invited Rita to stay at his house last night.

And they’d already had some practise at co-hosting together after their joint effort at the Teen Awards 2013 yesterday.

He took to his Twitter page with a snap of the 22-year-old, make up free and in a T-shirt smoking a cigarette on his sofa, as he wrote: “Sleepover at mine with my co-host tomorrow.”

Despite her “I should still be in bed” face, we’re sure once Rita got some caffeine in her, she was a lot more lively.

And once in the studio, she took to her Twitter page and enthusiastically wrote: “Wakey wakey Up and early make sure you listen 2 my first co host this morning!

“I can’t believe I’m up this early! on @R1Breakfast @grimmers.”
