Jessie J will need to have further surgery on her ankle later this year, following an injury she sustained during her concert rehearsals two years ago.
The ‘Wild’ singer had to have a metal plate put into her foot in 2011 after breaking it, when she fell off the stage at London’s Wembley Stadium before a show.
The ‘Voice UK’ judge was seen hobbling on crutches for the months after the accident and while it looked like she had made a full recovery, Jessie admits that’s not the case.
The 25-year-old will have surgery on her ankle in December to have the plate taken out altogether, as it’s causing her a lot of pain.
She explained: “I hurt my ankle about two years ago and it’s still causing me a lot of discomfort. I’m getting some time off at Christmas and I’m having surgery to have the plate removed.
“It is flicking against my bone and is causing a lot of pain,” Jessie added to the Daily Mirror newspaper. “The foot is still bruised and swells up because it won’t heal, so I’m having the metal taken out.
“It sets off the security systems at airports and when I sit down it goes cold. I’m hoping it will be sorted at Christmas then it will be done and dusted and I can have some down time.”
It’s not known if the painful injury will affect the ‘Price Tag’ singer’s appearances at V Festival this summer, or her new arena tour which will be taking place across the UK during October and November.
The summer will also see Jessie releasing her long awaited second album, which she says is a “little more hitting” than her 2011 debut, ‘Who You Are’.
“I can hear this in the clubs this one you know and I can hear it acoustic and I can hear it on piano,” she said of the new record.
“It’s still tough, it’s still rebellious, it’s still hard hitting but it’s definitely more grown up, but it’s definitely more thought through.”
