Rita Ora managed to avoid any mention of her ‘wedding’ to Taika Waititi while making a live TV appearance, where she made a hilarious gaffe concerning a peach and what she believed was a ‘dusty apple’.
The first show back featured a stellar line-up of stars, including the return of Big Breakfast veteran Denise Van Outen, Love Island winners Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu and Davide Sanclimenti and Oscar winner Daniel Kaluuya.
At one point, Rita made a virtual appearance with musician Netsky to promote their new single Barricades, with the singer tuning in via video message from 3am at her location.
After discussing the many snacks she hides under her desk on The Masked Singer, Rita fetched an ‘apple’ from her fruit bowl and brought it right up close to the camera, complaining about how ‘dusty’ it looked.
But AJ then felt the need to tell Rita the truth, chiming in to add: ‘I’m sorry to break it to you – that’s a peach, not an apple.’

Rita peered at the peach in shock at this revelation, having been completely unaware that it was an entirely different kind of fruit.
‘Rita is obviously a lady who doesn’t go to the supermarket,’ Mo joked, before she and Netsky bid everyone at the Big Breakfast studio farewell.
Fans might have been hoping for Rita to spill the beans on her apparent nuptials to Thor: Love and Thunder director Taika, after it was reported that they tied the knot in a ‘secret, intimate ceremony’ in London.

Rita’s close friend and hairstylist James Brown seemingly confirmed on social media that the couple had exchanged their vows, sharing congratulations to ‘Mrs Waititi Ora’.
Despite no wedding talk, fans loved Rita’s peach-apple mix-up, with one tweeting: ‘Rita Ora thinking a peach was a “dusty apple”. She lives on her own planet. I love her.’
‘Bless her @RitaOra not knowing the difference between an apple 🍎 and a peach 🍑 #haha #what #noway #bigbreakfast,’ someone else said, while another wrote: ‘Screaming at @ritaora mistaking a peach for a ‘dusty apple’ 😂.’
The Big Breakfast is already the gift that keeps on giving.
The Big Breakfast returns next Saturday at 10am on Channel 4 and All 4.
