‘I thought it was still my throat, I had really bad earache but basically if you guys have followed me for years and years you would know as a child I was pretty much in and out of hospital all the time.
‘I got so many ear infections. They were just absolute agony – I would scream and I would cry. I couldn’t hear out of my ears.
