Jonathan Ross had to poke fun at his co-star singer Rita Ora after joking that he would invite 30 people over for Christmas

It comes after Rita broke the second tier lockdown rules by inviting 30 people to her birthday party at a London restaurant earlier this month

Jonathan, who sits on the jury of The Masked Singer with Rita, Davina McCall and Mo Gilligan, spoke about how he would spend Christmas this year

“I’m going to comply with government restrictions so it’s just me and 30 people in a confined space,” joked Jonathan

The How We Do singer had to apologize after she turned 30 Birthday had violated the restrictions of the second stage

She later apologized again when it turned out that she should be quarantined when she was hosting her dinner party in Notting Hill, having returned from a trip to Egypt just days earlier

It was also reported earlier this week that Rita left the UK to travel to Bulgaria to work on her new music video

Sources claim the star plans to go on vacation after filming instead of returning to London in hopes of staying in the background

“Rita beat herself up for her mistakes but went back to work trying to get her mind off things,” according to an insider, The Sun

“She has spent most of this year working on her music and now hopes to return with new tracks in early 2021 The video for a single is currently being shot in Bulgaria ’

They added, “[Rita] doesn’t want to be in London right now, so has booked a relaxing Christmas and New Years vacation in the hope that she can start over in January”’

On Saturday the Prime Minister announced a new Tier 4 system for London and the South East of England

The announcement comes after concerns about a new mutant strain of coronavirus that is common in the southeast and is spreading 70% faster than other forms of the virus, while not being any more deadly

Speaking at a press conference on Downing Street, Mr Johnson said the fourth stage restrictions in London and the South East are similar to those during the last national lockdown and will come into effect from midnight last night

At the last minute, he also stated that the five day bubbles will be thrown away and that people in grades one, two and three are only allowed to mix households themselves on Christmas Day – which freezes London and most of it in the southeast
