Jessie J to undergo ankle operation

London, June 25 (IANS) Singer-songwriter Jessica Ellen Cornish, popularly known as Jessie J, says she is going to have an ankle surgery to get a metal plate removed from her left foot. She will undergo the operation in December.

The pain and discomfort she suffers is due to an injury she sustained two years ago when she fell off the stage at Wembley Stadium here.

"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," quoted Jessie J as saying.

"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," she said.
