London: Singer Jessie J is going to have a metal plate removed from her left foot in December.

The `Price Tag` hitmaker is in agony from an injury she sustained two years ago when she fell off the stage while rehearsing for a performance at London`s Wembley Stadium, reported Contactmusic.

"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. 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.

Jessie, 25, previously had to have a bone transplant as part of reconstructive surgery to heal her left ankle, who she broke in 2011, and was forced to wear a cast for two months while she recovered.
