Jessie Jhas opened up about a serious foot injury that almost left her unable to walk and wheelchair bound.
The incident happened in 2011 when the singer fell off a stage whilst rehearsing for the Capital FM Summertime Ball.
Jessie revealed that she still has regular physio following her injury, while adding she is often in pain and can rarely wear heels.
She told The Sun: “I’ve had a bone transplant, a fusion, a metal plate and four bolts put into my foot. That accident almost cost me the ability to walk!”
Despite the mishap occurring more than two years ago, the Wild singer admitted that she still has regular difficulty with her foot: “I often have to have my foot popped back in as it pops off the bone.
“It’s pretty rare that I can wear high heels these days – mostly flats.”
Jessie still managed to perform some of her scheduled 2011 shows, including an appearance at the Glastonbury Festival, where she took to the stage on a throne.
Speaking of her injury at the time, Jessie said: "It's worse than people think it is because I haven't really gone into detail about it.”
"You have your moments where sometimes people don't realise how much pain you're in and you can't tell them."
Jessie is due to perform at the iTunes Festival on September 23 - the same day that her sophomore LP Alive is released.
Her new single, It’s My Party, will be avaliable from September 15.
