X Factors Amelia Lily begs fans for help amid seven-year health issue
Amelia Lily, 28, first rose to prominence after participating in the 2011 series of X Factor, where she eventually came in third place behind pop superstars Little Mix.
But despite going on to secure huge TV gigs including Celebrity Big Brother, Amelia has been battling health woes that she said keep her “awake all night”.
Amelia took to Instagram on Tuesday to reveal her health concerns in view of her 168,000 followers.
She explained: “I’ve been suffering from a shoulder injury now since 2016 and it’s got worse and worse.
“Had sports massages, acupuncture, I’ve had scans and X-rays and was diagnosed with a problem but my only options were physio, steroid injections and painkillers.

“And even the steroid injections won’t stop the ongoing problem apparently. The pain literally keeps me awake all night sometimes,” Amelia added.
Pleading with her fans for advice, Amelia asked: “Can anybody at all with a similar problem please recommend anything? Literally any help would be massively appreciated.”
Following her successful stint in X factor, Amelia went on to take part in Celebrity Big Brother, finishing the Channel 5 reality show as runner-up in 2017.
Later that year, the singer secured a job in pantomime – in the role of Tinkerbell in Peter Pan.
She featured alongside Hollyoaks alum James Sutton and fellow The X Factor graduate Lloyd Daniels.

Amelia excitedly announced her involvement, writing on Instagram: “I am too excited!!!! Who’s coming to see us?! @maidstonepanto”.
Amelia’s stage career had taken flight in years prior, which saw her play Whatsername in Green Day musical American Idiot on the West End and in a UK Tour.
She also starred in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat as the narrator in 2015, and in Shout! The Mod Musical in Blackpool in 2016.
Her transition to the stage came after some fleeting chart stardom: her song You Bring Me Joy charted at number two in 2012 but subsequent songs Shut Up (And Give Me Whatever You Got), Party Over and California failed to reach the same heights.
