Rita Ora was pleasantly surprised to bump into Beyoncé during last weekend's Coachella festival.

Rita joined a host of stars for the first weekend of the annual music festival in California on Saturday and Sunday.

Beyoncé's husband Jay Z - who is also Rita's Roc Nation boss - joined rapper Nas for an iconic performance on stage, and Beyoncé also surprised fans by joining sister Solange for a choreographed dance routine.

Posting a photo to Instagram last night (15 April), in which Rita and Queen B are seen embracing with a hug, Rita said: "This was the best surprise of the whole festival @beyonce #myheartmeltseverytime #loveyoumissthang #coachella."

'Shine Ya Light' singer Rita travelled in style as she arrived at the festival over the weekend, and jumped on a private plane wearing a boho-style floaty black dress.

Rita, who was signed by Jay Z's long-running Roc Nation label in 2009, supported close friend Ellie Goulding, who was performing a set at Coachella.

On Sunday evening, Rita prised herself away from the festival to present the 'Best Shirtless Performance' award at the MTV Movie awards - and she ended up ripping Zac Efron's shirt off on stage!

Elsewhere, Rita is set to perform new music from her forthcoming studio album at a special London gig on 13 May.
