While many girls would probably be glad to not have their mothers fixing their hair like they did in their younger years, it looks as though Rita is grateful to have her mum Vera around for some emergency touch ups before she goes on stage.
The blonde songstress posed for a candid photo with Vera in a bathroom before her performance in Sunderland on Sunday (22 June) and proved that despite being able to bag any hairdresser she wants, no-one does it quite like mum.
Sporting a cropped black top, which featured a cut out back, Rita looked toned and ready to go, as she waited for her locks to be coiffed for the 'North East Live' stage.
Unsurprisingly, Rita was also sporting her signature red lipstick and teamed her cool outfit with a pair of huge sparkly earrings for a glamorous twist.
Meanwhile, Vera was pictured in an all-black ensemble and in total concentration mode, as she unwound her daughter's pinned up curls.
Given that Vera appears to have joined Rita on tour, we wonder whether the pair have spoken about the 'Shine Ya Light' singer's apparent blossoming romance with Calvin Harris.
Rita and the superstar DJ are thought to be dating after being photographed holding hands and seen spending time together on several occasions recently - in both London and in Los Angeles.
In fact, last week 22-year-old Rita was spotted jetting back and forth from LA twice in one week so that she could meet up with her rumoured beau.
Could that mean Calvin has Vera's seal of approval?
