Pop star Rita Ora has been banned from dousing food with her favourite spicy sauce over fears the condiment is damaging her voice.

The R.I.P. hitmaker was ordered by her doctor to cut Tabasco sauce from her diet in a bid to keep her vocal cords in prime condition.

She tells Britain's Daily Star, "I've been told by my doctor that Tabasco is bad for my voice so I can't have it any more - but I absolutely love it.

"The head of Tabasco even sent me a bottle with my name on it. My whole team were emailed within an hour of me being told with orders to keep me away from it."
