Shoeless singer SANDIE SHAW has undergone corrective surgery to beautify her unsightly feet.
The Puppet on a String hitmaker confesses she has always hated her feet and recently underwent an operation to correct them.
She says, "I have always wanted beautiful feet, the kind that step out encased in dainty, diamante, strappy extravaganzas, that tick-tack across sun dappled marble floors, and from which expensive champagne is drunk."
The star - who appeared shoeless at the 1967 Eurovision song contest - admits she has always been ridiculed for her misshapen feet, especially by husband Tony Bedford.
She adds, "My husband says that when I was being created the design team did a great job until they got down to my ankles when they were called off on another job and a clumsy apprentice was left to finish me off.
"It is ironic that I am so well known for singing barefoot."
'Smalls Change (Meditations Upon Ageing)' arrives in April.
The two awards have made for a great 72nd birthday present for the country music icon.
