Little Mix singer Perrie Edwards said that there was a time when she "sounded like a frog" because her tonsils grew the "size of balloons".

Speaking on Apple Music 1, the singer revealed that it was after her X-Factor days when she was taken into surgery to remove her tonsils.

Apparently, they were so swollen that Perrie would "cringe" every time she heard recordings of the group’s first album DNA as her medical deteriorated voice.

"On X Factor we had no sleep and my tonsils were the size of balloons," she said.

“I went to see a specialist and he said, ‘I’ve done this job for 30 years and I’ve never seen tonsils like this. I don’t know how you can breathe.’"

"They took them out and then my voice completely changed for the better. I was like Kermit the Frog," she said.
