The Voice 2013: Jessie J heads for more ankle surgery – Andrea Begley is still ‘overwhelmed’

Jessie J will be taking some time out this summer to have more surgery on her ankle.

The ‘Wild’ hitmaker injured her leg and foot back in 2011 during a performance at Wembley Stadium and ended up in a cast at the time.

She had surgery on the bone after the incident occurred but revealed that she is set to return to hospital for more reconstruction very soon. Jessie will soon be heading for cast and crutches again and told The Mirror that she is having some of the metal used to rebuild her leg removed, as it hasn’t healed properly.

She said:

“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.”

The singer continued: “I hurt my ankle about two years ago and it’s still causing me a lot of discomfort. The foot is still bruised and swells up because it won’t heal, so I’m having the metal taken out.”

Jessie had to wait until after filming for The Voice wrapped before she could contemplate the hospital stay. The final of the show aired on Saturday and in the end there was a bit of a shock result as Andrea Begley won over bookies’ favourite Leah McFall.

The Northern Irish singer is as surprised as everyone else about her win and tweeted fans yesterday saying:

“Did that just happen??!!! Thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you!!!!!!!!!!”

“Hope everyone’s well today, woke up this morning, it still hasn’t sunken in! Thank you for choosing me!”

This morning the visually impaired singer added:

“Back in Salford, thinking about being here with @Mitchelemms and @itsKarlMichael last time. #TeamDanny for life!!!!”

“Thanks for having me on @BBCgmu just overwhelmed by the support from home! Love it :)”
