Perrie Edwards has revealed she is left in agony every time she dances, thanks to a slipped disc and a tear at the base of her back.

The Little Mix star, 27, recently found out about her painful injury, but it hasn’t stopped her from pulling out all the stops when it comes to her performances – no matter how uncomfortable it may be.

She was seen looking fierce in Little Mix’s new video for Sweet Melody, where the girlband – also made up of Jesy Nelson, Jade Thirlwall and Leigh-Anne Pinnock – are seen performing some seriously slick choreography.

And fans would have been none the wiser that Perrie was in pain when she performed the band’s new track on their talent show The Search for its first live show.

But, speaking to The Sun, Perrie says that every time she dances, her back kills her.

She said: ‘I recently found out I have a slipped disc and tear in the base of my back/spine and I die every time we dance.’

Ever the professional, though, she added: ‘But it’s worth it.’

It comes as Little Mix are gearing up for the release of their new album Confetti, as well as preparing to host and perform at the MTV European Music Awards 2020.

‘Perrie is in pain with her back, but she is soldiering on,’ an insider told the paper.

‘It is a very uncomfortable injury to have, but she’s not going to let anything put a top to Little Mix’s mesmerising performances… for now, it’s business as usual and they are all eager to do the best performances of their career.’

News of Perrie’s injury comes as fans are watching her and the rest of Little Mix host their very own BBC talent show, where they’re hoping to find the next big band to join them on the road when they head on tour.

The girls have created six bands, including a girl group, a boyband and a dance group, that are now battling it out with each other to be crowned the show’s winner.

Jade was forced to isolate during the first live show and appeared via video link, as the bands took to the stage live for the first time.

The mixed group, Jasper Blu, were the first band to be sent home, with Perrie appearing in tears as she broke the news.
