Rita Ora looks worlds away from her usual glam self in her Artful Dodger costume

Who the Dickens is this? Rita Ora has swapped her usual sparkly outfits for a mac, trilby and rollneck sweater.

Rita, 28, went incognito this week to play Cockney pickpocket the Artful Dodger in a modern movie version of the Charles Dickens classic Oliver Twist.

The star filmed scenes for Sky Cinema’s film Twist outside Italian caff Pellicci’s in Bethnal Green in London’s East End.

Her co-stars include Jude Law’s son Raff, 23, as young Oliver, Sir Michael Caine, 86, as crime boss Fagin and Game of Thrones star Lena Headey, 46, as a female version of Bill Sikes.


Sounds like this movie has plenty of modern twists.

Meanwhile Rita was named 13th richest people under 30 by the Heat Rich List.

She is is rumoured to have £17.8million in the bank.


Bur she's still human, and late October saw her being forced to pull out of her Berlin show after falling ill just hours before.

The former X Factor judge, 28, was scheduled to perform at a free Amazon event in Berlin, Germany, last night.

The Let You Love Me starlet took to her Instagram stories with an emotional post, admitting the decision not to perform was 'taken out of her hands'.


She sadly wrote: "I am so sad to have to announce that I've woken up today poorly and have been ordered by doctors to miss the amazon event today.

"I've been looking forward to seeing you all so much!"


Rita continued: "It is a decision that has been taken out of my hands and I am so sorry to not be there.

"Nothing makes me happier than performing and seeing my incredible fans and not being able to do that is devastating.

"You all mean the world to me."

Rita has been busy filming the modern remake of Oliver! in recent days but appeared totally heartbroken to be cancelling her appearance at the concert.

Other famous faces joining Rita in the highly-anticipated movie are comedian David Walliams and Sir Michael Caine, who will play Fagin.
