Connie Fisher has described the throat surgery she underwent after being told by doctors that she may never sing again.

The musical theatre star, who rose to fame on The Sound of Music talent search How Do You Solve a Problem Like Maria? underwent three separate operations.

Fisher told BBC Breakfast that her voice has changed, but that the new tone is perfect for her new role in the musical comedy Wonderful Town.
