Jessie J: had a stroke when she was 18

Jessie J has revealed that she had a stroke when she was 18.

The singer told Now: 'At 11 I was diagnosed with an irregular heartbeat. I had wired put in my shoulder, groin and heart to try and zap it into a normal rhythm but it didn't really work.

'Then at 18 I suffered a minor stroke. It was scary but I'm fine now.

'Having bad health has made me realise I can't take anything for granted and I must look after my body.'

She added: 'I'm a clean-living girl. I don't drink or smoke and would never do drugs.'
