Perrie Edwards in agony after tearing base of spine in painful injury

WITH their sixth album due out soon, a primetime TV show on every Saturday and hosting the MTV Europe Music Awards next weekend, Little Mix have a packed schedule.

So Perrie Edwards is probably wishing she hadn’t injured herself before one of the busiest periods of their nine-year career.

The singer has revealed she has suffered a slipped disc as well as tearing the base of her spine in a painful injury.

It means their energetic dance routines have become a nightmare amid their return to the pop circuit and a chart battle with Kylie Minogue, who releases her album Disco next Friday — the same day Little Mix’s record Confetti comes out.

Perrie admitted: “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.”

That must have been made worse by the energetic routine they did in the video for their brilliant new single Sweet Melody, which is set to hit the Top Ten today a week after its release. A music insider said: “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.

“For now, it’s business as usual and they are all eager to do the best performances of their career to showcase their new tracks.”

From what I’ve heard, their record Confetti is one of the best pop albums of the year.

I’ve got my fingers crossed everyone — including Perrie — can enjoy it on their tour next year.


All Mel and good

MEL B may have her Scary Spice hair back but she looked anything but frightening in this new photo.

The Spice Girl returned to social media today to share the first public snap of herself so far this year.

After the girl group’s reunion tour in 2019, she’s spent much of the past ten months taking time out of the spotlight. It looks like it’s done her the world of good.

Brushing up on revenge

IT’S no secret there are some unsavoury ­characters in showbiz – but one of them unknowingly suffered a foul revenge.

Radio 1 veteran Scott Mills has revealed a well-known male telly presenter was so rude to staff backstage at a TV studio that the make-up ­artist got her own back by rubbing the powder brush on her rear end first.

He told the Secret’s Out podcast: “I can’t say any names but I know there was a TV presenter who was so horrendous to his make-up people that on the day he left the show, the make-up lady . . . wiped her a**e with the powder that she then went on to powder his beautiful TV face with.”

Scott, who has appeared on shows including Strictly Come Dancing and The National Lottery, stayed shtum on exactly who the shameful star might be.

So now I need your help to get to the ­bottom of this pongy puzzle.

Do you know who it was? Get in touch.

ABBA’s Bjorn Ulvaeus has started an unlikely spat with Sophie Ellis-Bextor after branding gigs streamed live from celeb kitchens “so boring” – weeks before her album Songs From The Kitchen Disco is due out. The Swedish pop icon moaned: “We’ve seen pop stars streaming their latest song live from their kitchen. However ­talented they are, it’s boring. Boring! As a former pop star myself, I take the liberty to say that. It will never be a substitute for a packed stadium or a sold-out theatre.”

Retweeting the jibe, Sophie hit back: “Bjorn, you can say many things about my kitchen, but ­boring is not one of them.”

Beyonce is goddess in green

ANYONE looking at these pictures of Beyonce would be as green with envy as her outfits.

The Crazy In Love singer showed off her stunning body in her latest Adidas sportswear range that is out now. She rocked a matching hat, sports bra, leggings, hoodie, T-shirt and shorts – even grabbing her boobs in one provocative pose.

Bey posted to her Instagram account the different Ivy Park ranges, which have the odd sounding names azure, de-grassy, canari, coral lake and honey drip. 

I’ve just got to hope that her next album has a better title.

After all, she can’t have spent all of 2020 solely working on her wardrobe.

Elton rejected Liza proposal

CELEBS have done some odd things after going on a bender but tying the knot would be up there with the ­silliest.

That is what would have happened to global superstars Liza Minnelli and Sir Elton John if the Hollywood actress had got her way.

Liza proposed to Elton at Studio 54, the ­legendary Seventies New York club, but luckily the Rocket Man singer was sober enough to turn her down.

Elton recalled: “There was a downstairs area that had pinball machines with lines and lines of coke and you’d bump into everyone there, from politicians to ballet dancers to actors to singers. 

“Everyone down there was doing lines of coke.

“Liza Minnelli [right] once proposed to me down there. She asked: ‘Will you marry me?’

“At which point I broke the 100m sprint record and left.” Elton also revealed how he made long-term rival Rod Stewart take the drug poppers, the slang name for amyl nitrites, in the nightclub.

Elton said: “He wouldn’t get up and dance. I got up on there and had a bottle of poppers. I said, ‘Come up and dance – how can you not dance?’

“I shoved the bottle up his nose and he was on the dance floor for an hour and a half.

“‘Give me some of those, dear.’ We had so much fun.”

The star was speaking to Dua Lipa on an Instagram Live to promote her Studio 2054 live-streamed concert, which will take place on November 27, with tickets on sale now.

Let’s hope it’s just ­performing she’ll be doing.

GARY Barlow tomorrow releases new single Incredible, which is the second track from his upcoming solo album Music Played By Humans, out on November 27.

The song will be the soundtrack of Argos’ Book Of Dreams Christmas advert which launches on Sunday and features an 80-piece orchestra.

Meanwhile, Justin Bieber has become the No1 artist on Spotify with more than 60million monthly listeners.

The singer currently has two tracks on the streaming site’s Global Chart with Lonely and Holy – which has clocked up more than 300million global streams.

Deb's gay rap hunch

POP legend Debbie Harry wants more rappers to come out of the closet and says the hip-hop genre is lacking in LGBT representatives.

Following Lil Nas X and Frank Ocean opening up about their sexuality, the Blondie singer said: “I would be curious how many rap artists are actually closeted, you know. I can’t believe that it is all such a macho thing. I always felt I had a masculine drive. I was happy to feel I had that component. I have never really been mad or angry with men other than ­wanting to slap them once in a while.”

She added: “We are evolving with the gender fluid thing. We are all so willing to be exposed.”

Oll Wright now

OLLY Murs and Mark Wright are in peak condition so they must be doing something right in lockdown.

The pair linked up at their local David Lloyd Club in ­Chigwell, Essex, where they posed for this topless selfie.

The toned torsos will have pleased a lot of female fans, I’m sure.

Mark wrote on Instagram: “Gym and relax with that man Mursy.”

I don’t think I could keep up with them.
