Rita Ora faced backlash after she uploaded pictures with Irish MMA fighter Conor McGregor at the British Fashion Awards in London, captioning them ‘Date night’.

The songstress’ comment sparked backlash, as Conor has been with his childhood sweetheart Dee Devlin for nine years and they welcomed their first child together this year.

And it appears that Olivia Buckland was also not a fan of the cosy pictures.

She wrote: “I mean I loved Rita Ora but girl you about to put “date night” on a pic with my man and I would have to mark you six feet. Bye. #teamdev”.

She mused: “Although I do kinda think all of ‘em are sitting laughing at it as a publicity stunt or just bants. I reckon Dev took the pic or something.”

When a fan later questioned her on the threat issued to Rita, Olivia clarified that she didn’t actually mean it. 

She said: “It’s all tongue in cheek my love… I wouldn’t actually hurt a fly I think it’s a publicity stunt.”
