Rita Ora and Charli XCX cheated death when they crashed their Barbie truck.

The 'Break the Rules' hitmaker - whose real name is Charlotte Aitchison - has revealed she came close to killing herself and the 24-year-old singer when they were involved in a collision in a ''death trap'' pink motor in the desert while filming the video for new single 'Doing It'.

She said: ''I nearly killed both of us on the set by crashing this Barbie truck into the middle of the desert.

''There were no air bags. It was this old truck. It was a death trap! But we made it out alive and the video is so great and is dropping this week.''

While the pair both avoided death, surviving without serious injury, Charli, 22, is confident Rita will ''kill it'' in her big screen debut in next month's 'Fifty Shades Of Grey' movie, in which she plays titular character Christian Grey's (Jamie Dornan) adopted sister Mia.

She added to Metro newspaper: ''She is going to kill it. On the ['Doing It'] set we had to do one bit of acting and I was freaking out, like, 'I don't know how to do this,' but every time she was killing it.

''She is great and I think she's going to be wonderful.''

Rita's song 'Grateful' from the romantic/drama film 'Beyond the Lights' picked up an Oscar nomination - which was technically awarded to writer Diane Warren - and whether the tune triumphs or not at the Academy Awards the blonde stunner is in for a big night as she has signed up to perform at the ceremony.
