Rita Ora has admitted she gets sent loads of flirty messages from guys on social media.

The 'RIP hitmaker has admitted she's constantly being hounded by men trying their luck on social media and, although she usually ignores them, she sometimes entertains them and sends something cheeky back just because she's a bit bored. 

Speaking as she co-host BBC Radio 1 interview with Nick Grimshaw, she said when asked if she gets DMs (direct messages) from men on social media: "I get a few, I'm not going to lie and say I don't sometimes entertain it... But sometimes I completely ignore it and it's a little rude as I didn't see that there's a thing that says you've read the messages so I'm reading the messages and it just says read..."

When asked if it's every hour, the 27-year-old singer laughed: "Is it bad to say yes Not being full-headed. It's not like a focus on it, but I do get a few..."

However, the 'Girls' hitmaker is likely to get even more messages now that she's admitted that she sometimes goes out in public without any underwear on. 

She explained: "I didn't have any clean underwear I've been on tour for ages, I just came back last night, and I had to put on a leotard as I don't have any clean underwear! It's also called a Spanx, when you tuck everything in, you have to keep neat."

Rita hasn't had the best of luck when it comes to men as she was left heartbroken and embarrassed in the summer of 2014 when her ex-boyfriend Calvin Harris released a statement on Twitter announcing their split without pre-warning her beforehand. 

A source said at the time: "Rita was left embarrassed when he tweeted that it was all over. She didn't think he was going to make the announcement, so she was shocked."

His announcement was nice, so it came as a surprise when he banned her from performing her track 'I Will Never Let You Down' because he had written and produced it. 

That, in turn, meant Rita had to postpone the release of her fifth studio album because they had written and produced a lot of the songs together. 

However, once they'd made amends, she was allowed to perform the track.
