Rita Ora has become the latest star to lend her support to Oor Wullie’s BIG Bucket Trail.
The singer signed the shiny purple Celebrity Oor Wullie statue and posed for a picture backstage while she was in Glasgow to perform to thousands at The SSE Hydro.

Celebrity Oor Wullie has already met stars Tom Walker and Olly Murs ahead of the charity fundraising trail’s launch next month.
Scots singer Lewis Capaldi also lent his signature to the ‘Aff Yir Rocker’ design at an event in Edinburgh.
And we revealed last week that KT Tunstall had worked with artist Alison Soye on a design for the trail based on her debut album Eye To The Telescope.
The finishing touches have been added in the past few weeks to more than 150 sculptures of Oor Wullie, which will be out on Scotland’s streets this summer.
Oor Wullie’s BIG Bucket Trail runs from June until September in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Dundee, Aberdeen and Inverness.
The initiative aims to change the lives of thousands of young patients supported by Wullie’s three good causes: Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity, Edinburgh Children’s Hospital Charity and The ARCHIE Foundation.
Roslyn Neely, chief executive of Edinburgh Children’s Hospital Charity, said: “As we tick off our milestones we definitely sense the Oor Wullie BIG Bucket Trail will be a huge amount of fun. We will be unveiling some stunning sculptures on Monday 17, June.
“We are plotting maps and testing the app, preparing the 100,000 tons of concrete needed for the 200 plinths, and preparing for a special visitor on launch day.
“Lastly, we are looking towards the end of the summer when we will hold our farewell weekends, and the all-important auctions. It’s all go!”
