Singer Perrie is feeling under the weather

Little Mix star Perrie Edwards has had her tonsils removed.

The pretty singer, 19, has let her Twitter followers know that she’s going to absent from a few of the band’s upcoming concerts as a result of the operation.

Getting your tonsils taken out sucks! ‪#SORE‬ Thanks for all the lovely messages & Im sorry to miss some of our gigs! Love u mixers Perrie,’ she writes.

Perrie was feeling much happier earlier in the week when she jetted home from the States after watching her 19-year-old boyfriend Zayn Malik perform at Madison Square Garden with One Direction.

At the airport now, my New York days are over! I have a new found love for the beautiful city!,’ she said before uploading some snaps from her trip.
