SINGING star Adele has told her fans she is "on the mend" after she had an operation on her throat in a bid to cure the problems which have threatened to wreck her voice forever.

The Someone Like You singer cancelled a string of shows this month after she was diagnosed with a vocal cord haemorrhage.

She had earlier complained of her voice just "switching off" when she was forced to call off a US tour.

Writing on her website this week, she said: "I'm doing really well, on the mend, super happy, relaxed and very positive with it all. The operation was a success and I'm just chilling out now until I get the all-clear from my doctors."

The singer was also forced to pull the plug on a planned performance at the Mercury Music Prize ceremony in September and missed the Q Awards in London, where she had been due to pick up two trophies.
