X Factor's Honey G challenges Strictly's Ed Balls to a dance off


X Factor's Honey G has dropped the gauntlet to Strictly Come Dancing's Ed Balls.

A 'war' between the reality acts kicked off this weekend when Ed declared he was at least getting better each week.

Ed told the Daily Star newspaper: “I’m definitely aware of Honey G. I’ve seen a couple of YouTube videos.

“I am not sure what to say! As Craig would say: ‘OMG!’ All I will say is that I think I am getting better.”

However Honey G hit back: “Haters are always gonna hate! I just want to go all the way to the final and win it.”

On The X Factor live show this evening, Honey G challenged Ed to a dance off following her latest live performance.

It was movies week and Honey G had a big mash up planned to get her through to the Quarter Finals.

“Yo, yo, yo, it’s Honey G your girl here. Tonight on X Factor 2016 I’m going to be performing It’s Like That - Run-DMC, with Gettin' Jiggy wit It - Will Smith," Honey G said in the video message before the show.

She told fans: “Tonight is going to be mega, it’s going to be massive, it’s going to go down, it’s going to go off.”

After her song, Honey G got a standing ovation from all four judges.

But Nicole Scherzinger did finally admit that Honey G was just doing the exact same thing week after week.

As for Ed, his latest Strictly routine saw him descending from the ceiling on a flaming piano as the BBC series hit Blackpool for its traditional mid-series special.

Both shows continue Sunday night with their respective results shows.
