Jessie J walking again

She ditched the crutches at a recent gig and finally seems to be on the mend.

Jessie J is all set for her UK Heartbeat tour which kicks off next month, and in preparation Jessie has ditched the crutches for some pre-show practice.

She said on Twitter: "I just walked in my boot without my crutches for the first time , Proud of myself. It will be ok in the end if its not ok its not the end. Long way to go yet but its a 'step in the right direction' :) ."

Jessie broke her foot badly during a rehersal in June and underwent major reconstructive surgery, including a bone transplant.

"I've had to have full reconstruction. I've had my bone taken out and someone else's put in. I hope they were a tap dancer, she told The Sun.

On top of the Price Tag singer's first steps, the singer even performed at a private gig without having to sit for the whole of the show, afterwards tweeting:

"Just finished :) got everyone on there feet , Even I stood up for the first time and sang a whole song since June :D!! "

Jessie is set to perform at the MOBO awards next month, where she's been nominated for 5 awards, and time will tell if she'll be sitting or standing...
