Hate her, love her – Honey G is on the lips of every The X Factor contestants. Mostly, people are asking why she’s in the competition in the first place? Well it seems Little Mix have the answer!

The former winners may have just blown the most obvious joke in the show’s history by claiming that she is actually an actress.

We already uncovered the fact that Honey G, real name Anna Gilford, is in fact a former competitive tennis player from Harrow, who has a master’s degree in management. Oh, and she runs her own recruitment company.

Yet she also appears as a rapper in her spare time? Hmmm…

Well Jesy, Leigh-Anne, Perrie and Jade all appeared on KISS FM to promote their new album and decided to blow her cover in the mean time.

Jesy said: ‘She’s just no. I think she’s an actress, I’ve been told she is as well.’

Awkward for Simon Cowell

Leigh-Anne remarked: ‘I’m all for entertainment, but I’m also all for real talent as well.’

But Honey G isn’t without her believers and supporters. Choreographer Brian Friedman revealed what he really thinks about the rapper from North Weezy.

Talking to Digital Spy, he said: ‘She’s so passionate about her craft. So the first time I saw her live performing I was expecting something completely different.

‘She’s definitely having fun, she believes in everything she does and I think she’s going to have to step her game up, as we can only have, “I say Honey you say G” so many times before it gets old.’
