The I Will Never Let You Down singer lost followers across her social media platforms after she apologised for throwing a party at a swanky Notting Hill restaurant in November.

Rita apologised at the time and paid a £10,000 fine for what she called a “small gathering”.

But, a week later it was revealed Rita had broken another rule by having the celebration as she was failed to have isolated following a trip to Egypt.

The star has now seemingly decided to start afresh on Instagram, on which she has 16 million followers.

The singer has stripped the account of photos as far back as 2012, but she has since uploaded two new snaps.

The first is an album cover where she is pictured with red hair, posing alongside other artists including David Guetta.

She invites fans to pre-order her new EP ‘Bang’ in the caption, and followed this with a string of orange coloured emojis.

In another snap posted on her Instagram, the blonde beauty has again swapped her locks for red hair and she wears a black beret and revealing black top.

“EXCITEDDDD!!!” she pens in the caption, while telling fans her new single will be out soon.

Rita’s new start on Instagram comes as she touched down in Australia, after being given permission to leave the UK and travel to Sydney for work commitments as she prepares to start her new job as a coach on the country's series of The Voice.

After being branded "selfish" by British police when she broke lockdown rules in November, Rita was escorted to her quarantine hotel by the army as she arrived Down Under.

Photos obtained by MailOnline saw the pop star, who is currently starring on The Masked Singer UK, being followed out of Sydney International Airport by a member of the Australian army.

The Australian army and police are currently greeting all visitors into the country, and helping with luggage when necessary.

She managed to look chic yet casual in a plain white t-shirt, a pair of orange and black patterned trousers and an oversized camel coloured coat as she marched her way through arrivals.

Adhering to coronavirus guidelines, she wore a black face mask which also covered her neck, with a black beanie hat tucked inside the covering.
