Stunned shoppers see superstar ‘Rita Ora’ in Glasgow second-hand stores prank

Glasgow shoppers were forced to do a double take as superstar singer Rita Ora was spotted browsing the city’s second hand stores this week.

Rita Ora has landed in the city and will be performing to fans at the SSE Hydro tomorrow.

But, fans were disappointed when it was revealed it was simply a Rita Ora lookalike who had taken to the streets to peruse Revolve secondhand shops.

It’s the second time the lookalike stunt has been pulled, with a Hugh Jackman doppelganger spotted checking out items at the Salvation Army and Bike For Good during the Hollywood star’s Glasgow tour earlier this month.

The prank was put on by Zero Waste Scotland as part of a move to change perceptions of second hand shopping and showcase the quality and variety of pre-loved items in Revolve certified second hand stores.

The stunt also aimed to demonstrate that no matter your budget, second hand shopping offers the same high street retail shopping experience.

Rita Ora and Hugh Jackman were actually celeb lookalikes Brookie Grimes and Brett Harding.

Wendy Russell, project manager at R:evolve Recycle, said: “There were more than a few shocked faces and plenty of double takes when professional Rita Ora look-a-like popped into our store.

“The singer is known for her strong fashion looks so it was a great opportunity to demonstrate you can shop for the same high street styles in second hand stores.

“Customers can easily find unusual or not on the high street items, as well as more regular choices. Every store has different goods adding to the excitement of shopping.”
