X Factor's Honey G says Cheryl Cole is one of the musicians she most relates to.

Chatting after her audition at the weekend, Honey G suggested the pair were actually very similar.

"Obviously she’s not on the panel this year but I identify myself most with Cheryl Cole,” Honey G told The Sun newspaper.

She explained: “She was always very honest and she always likes to keep it real.

“And she’s quite good at getting on with people, not only the judges but the contestants as well and being able to build up good relationships with the constants and boast their morale.

“And she’s also very talented as well picking good acts.”

Honey G from North West London - aka North Wheezy - brought her unique version of Missy Elliott's Work It to the Room Auditions on Saturday night.

The performer described herself as a "genuine urban artist" who was "representing for The X Factor massive" before performing for the judges.

Honey G - real name Anna Georgette Gilford - made it into bootcamp with three yeses but Simon Cowell was NOT a fan.

"It was so uncomfortable, you shouldn't be doing this," he told her.

The X Factor 2016 continues this Saturday and Sunday night on ITV.
