She was not among a small number of A-listers allowed to avoid quarantine, thought to include Tom Hanks.
Instead Rita was escorted from Sydney Airport to a waiting minibus.
She was then driven to a nearby hotel and shut in her room.
A source said: “Rita travelled first-class, with all the trimmings of private lounges and VIP suites.

“But there was nothing she could do to avoid having to properly quarantine.
“It’s very clear how seriously the Australians are taking their border control, and there are no risks taken at all.
“They have no time for rule-breakers.
“Border agents and the military are involved – and she had to comply.”

Rita’s work trip, approved by UK officials, comes after she was branded “selfish” by British police last week.
A council licensing meeting heard that she offered the since-sacked manager of restaurant Casa Cruz £5,000 to use his venue in Notting Hill, West London.
It also emerged that CCTV was turned off at the bash, where guests included model Cara Delevingne and her sister Poppy.
Rita later issued an apology for breaking lockdown rules and volunteered to pay a £10,000 fine.

A source added: “She’s had a lot of challenges and knows she has made mistakes.
“But she’s desperate to just keep her head down and get on with things now if possible — and certainly doesn’t want any more trouble over the rules.
“She learnt her lesson.”
