English pop singer Jessie J has revealed that she was rushed to hospital on Christmas Eve after being diagnosed with Meniere’s disease, which left her deaf and unable to walk properly.

The new clip comes following the singer’s post on Instagram Story in which she told fans that she was admitted to hospital with Meniere’s disease.

She revealed that the inner-ear condition — which can cause vertigo —left her “completely deaf in my right ear” and unable to walk in a straight line.

Jessie J said: “I woke up and felt like I was completely deaf in my right ear, I couldn’t walk in a straight line. Basically, I got told I had Meniere's syndrome.”

“I know that a lot of people suffer from it and I’ve actually had a lot of people reach out to me and give me great advice, so I’ve just been laying low in silence,” the singer, 32, continued.

“Now’s the first time I’ve been able to sing and bear it. I just miss singing so much and being around anyone.”

She added: “It could be way worse, it is what it is. I’m super grateful for my health. It just threw me off. On Christmas Eve I was in the ear hospital going, ‘What is going on?’”

The singer — real name Jessica Ellen Cornish — said that she was glad she went to hospital on time and that her doctors figured out the issue quickly.

“I got put on the right medicine, so I’m feeling a lot better today.”

In a separate post, the “Bang Bang” singer described her symptoms further, stating: “When I sing loud, it sounds like there’s someone trying to run out of my ear.

“I am now watching “Queen’s Gambit” with my finger in my ear. I’ve done the first episode four times because I (have) zero focus and my ear sounds like someone crawled in and turned a hairdryer on.”
