Singer wants to beat recurrent tonsillitis

Leona Lewis may have to have surgery on her throat to put an end to the severe bouts of tonsillitis she has been suffering.

The X Factor winner has been told that unless she has the op she’ll continue to get recurrent throat infections.

‘Leona has been consulting top surgeons in Britain and America,’ a source tells The Sun.

‘She has been told she could need an operation to put an end to the problem for good. But for a singer to have a throat op is particularly terrifying.’

The 22-year-old singer is determined the problem won’t affect her career.

‘Leona would like to reassure fans this is a routine operation that will not affect her voice,’ her spokesman says.

‘She has sought specialists’ advice. If an operation becomes necessary it would be routine procedure.’

Meanwhile, 2005 X Factor winner Shayne Ward has also had problems with his voice. He was forced to have an op in LA last summer to remove growths in his throat, reports the Daily Record.

He has now made a full recovery and is expected to kick off his UK tour in Glasgow on 12 May.
