Speaking about her work with the campaign Rita said: ‘It’s so exciting to see what is possible with EE’s next-generation technology. 

‘It was a lot of fun being part of something which really pushed the boundaries of live performance. 

‘Registering the movements of my hands, body and face, was cool, but seeing myself as an AR avatar, dancing around live, totally blew my mind. My first-ever 5G-powered AR performance was so incredible, and it looks phenomenal!’

Elsewhere, Rita recently sparked engagement rumours with boyfriend Romain Gavras after she was spotted wearing a diamond ring on her wedding finger. 

A diner at the restaurant told The Sun on Sunday: ‘Rita was showing off the ring on Thursday with the women seemingly cooing over it.

‘She seemed in high spirits when she left the restaurant and then shoved her hand in her pocket.’

While James Constantinou of Prestige Pawnbrokers said the artist’s new piece of jewellery appeared to be a sapphire and diamond cluster ring, which if an antique piece, could cost around £50,000. 

However despite the speculation, a source close to the musician told the publication that the singer has simply treated herself to a new flashy piece of vintage jewellery.

MailOnline contacted Romain Gavras’ representative for a comment while Rita’s spokesperson declined to comment.

The former X Factor judge has been dating the Greek-French director, 39, for the past few months after they were first seen together in July after a night of partying.
