Leona Lewis

British singer Leona Lewis is to undergo an operation on her throat in a bid to save her voice.

The former X Factor winner is prone to severe bouts of tonsillitis which are threatening to hamper her singing career - so she is now considering surgery in a bid to alleviate the recurrent illness.

Lewis who is in the middle of a massive promotional push in the U.S., has consulted specialists on both sides of the Atlantic to make sure any operation to remove her tonsils will not affect her voice.

A representative for the star has confirmed she is to go under the knife, but insists her music career will not be compromised.

He says, "Leona would like to reassure fans this is a routine operation which will not affect her voice. She has sought specialists’ advice for this. If an operation becomes necessary, it would be a routine procedure."

The 22-year-old suffered from the debilitating condition during the X Factor TV contest in 2006. She also fell victim to the illness last year and was forced to take a major break from the recording of her debut album, Spirit, which was released in the U.S. this year.
