Ella Eyre’s ears ended swimming career


Ella Eyre became a singer when ear infections ended her swimming dreams.

The 21-year-old star initially wanted to pursue her sporting passion when she was younger but gave it up after frequently getting ill, something which she now regards as a “blessing in disguise”.

She said: “I wanted to be a swimmer when I was growing up – I trained so hard, but at 13 I had to give it up as I kept getting really bad ear infections.

“It was obviously a blessing in disguise, because I started drama and eventually moved to The Brit School.”
