Look! No cast: Jessie J walked freely without the help of her trusty cast as she arrived in Glasgow today

She has such a trademark look that we rarely see Jessie J without her heavy make-up and blunt fringe - and more recently, her foot cast.

But the singer looked like a whole new woman as she landed in Glasgow today without any of the above.

The 23-year-old popstar arrived in Scotland looking fresh-faced without a scrap of her usual slap and with a bouncy pony tail rather than her usual bob.

And for the first time in months, Jessie was walking without the help of her cast, which has been a constant presence for the entire summer.

Jessie was in great spirits as she landed, flashing photographers a big smile and the peace sign.

Her good mood is presumably a result of finally having her cast taken off, although it is unclear whether the development changes anything regarding the singer pulling out of Katy Perry's concerts.

Walking free: The singer has been sporting the cast all summer but looked happy to go without it today

She admitted earlier this month that she was 'devastated' when doctors ordered her to rest her injured foot.

The Do It Like a Dude singer tweeted: 'Having a cry about having to pull out of the @katyperry tour. I am as upset as my #heartbeats believe me. My foot is just not healing as well as I hoped. :( '

Doctors insisted that Jessie's foot wouldn't heal properly if she took part in the tour as planned.

The accident occurred in June after she fell off a podium while rehearsing for London's Summertime Ball.

Not realising the severity of the injury, Jessie spent two weeks walking on it before discovering that it was broken, which aggravated the injury.

Jessie even underwent a bone transplant at the beginning of this month as part of her treatment.

'I've had to have full reconstruction. I've had my bone taken out and someone else's put in. I hope they were a tap dancer,' Jessie told The Sun.

'I don't know when it's going to be fully healed, or if I will ever be able to wear heels again. I'll have to get an endorsement deal with a trainer company.'

Usual look: The singer hasn't been seen without her cast for months

'I have days where I sit and cry. It's the hardest thing I've been through. I should have really spent the last three months at home but I couldn't turn down the VMAs and Glastonbury,' she added.

Jessie managed to perform as a DJ at the VMAs by spending much of her stage time sitting on an ornate throne.

She is trying to stay positive about her sad news, tweeting: 'Music isnt a cure but its a healer... I said that today. Felt right... I love making music x'

It is feared that Jessie may never be able to walk in heels again.

Katy Perry tweeted her good wishes to Jessie as she announced her replacement, writing on Twitter: 'Please welcome @elliegoulding to the #CaliforniaDreamsTour this November! @jessiejofficial feel better soon'

Ellie Goulding re-tweeted Katy's message.

The singer is clearly thrilled by her unexpected break however, tweeting excitedly: 'Never thought I would ever play Madison Square Garden, and now I am. Thank you @katyperry megababe x'
