Honey G has is through to the judges houses on The X Factor 2016 after another act was forced to leave.

This evening it was the turn of the Overs at the Six Chair Challenge and Honey G's performance won over the audience but not mentor Sharon Osbourne.

Despite the crowd chanting to give Honey a seat, Sharon said: "Honestly, I am very rarely stumped for words but I just feel right now I cannot give you a sat."

However Honey G WILL be in Sharon's final six after Ivy Grace Paredes was forced to quit due to visa problems.

Ivy NAILED her performance to win a chair in the final six this evening: The 33 year-old singer and mother of one from the Philippines belted out Whitney Houston's I Have Nothing to wow the judges at audience at Wembley Arena.

However it was previously revealed during filming at judges' houses that Ivy had been forced to leave the competition.

A spokesperson for the show said: "As with all contestants travelling to the US for Judges Houses, Ivy was required to have a visa.

"Unfortunately there was an issue with her application being approved which meant that she was not granted a visa in time and sadly had to withdraw from the competition."

Ivy's departure left a space free for Honey G to return, as confirmed on the Xtra Factor live this evening.

She'll now be competing for a place in the live shows alongside the rest of Sharon's Overs, Samantha Atkinson, James Wilson, Relley C, Christopher Peyton and Janet Grogan.

The X Factor continues on ITV Saturday 1st October at 8pm and Sunday 2nd October at 7.30pm
