A fan on Twitter asked whether she’s still recovering from learning the choreography from Little Mix’s new single and their debut performance of it on their reality show The Search.  

Perrie replied: ‘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. But it’s worth it.’ 

A source told The Sun: ‘Perrie is in pain with her back but she is soldiering on. 

‘It is a very uncomfortable injury to have but she’s not going to let anything put a stop to Little Mix’s mesmerising performances — not on their BBC1 show The Search nor the EMAs.’
