Jade, 25, took to Twitter last night, berating the 22-year-old after she mocked the Sugababes singer’s career in a recent interview.

She tweeted: “Easy to mock when you are enjoying success. Eurovision and splash? Proud of both Some manage to sleep their way to success some have morals (sic)”

Don’t hold back on what you really think, Jade.

Jade rose to fame in 2009 after winning BBC Talent show ‘Your Country Needs You!’ which saw her go on to represent the UK alongside Andrew Lloyd Webber in the Eurovision song contest- ultimately finishing in 5th place.

A 16-year-old Rita also auditioned to be on the show but decided it wasn’t for her immediately after singing for Andrew.

Following the competition, Jade went on to join the Sugababes and competed in ITV1’s diving reality show ‘Splash!’ earlier this year.

Talking to the London Evening Standard, Rita seemingly mocked Jade’s career, explaining that she was relieved not to have taken part in the Eurovision show.

She told the paper: "I was 16. Andrew Lloyd Webber was there. Right from the start I was, like, 'What am I doing here?'

"I did my song and walked out. No-one knew what to do. They started looking for me, calling my agent.

"Imagine! If I'd stayed, it would probably have been all over for me. At best, I'd be a contestant on that diving show…?' Splash!? Yeah, Splash! I love that show."

We can see why Jade was more than a little upset by Rita’s comments.

Rita Ora is yet to respond to Jade’s claims.
