X Factor 2016: Honey G's biggest fan revealed... and it's her own mum


Honey G's biggest fan has been revealed as her very own mum.

Last night saw The X Factor 2016 live shows kick off with Honey G closing the evening.

Honey G belted out California by 2Pac with some of her own lyrics.

Louis Walsh remarked: "I think 2Pac would be happy."

Nicole Scherzinger commented on Honey's jumpsuit: "It's like Missy Elliot does a jacket potato."

And Simon Cowell said: "I don't know what just happened.

"But here's the weird thing, I loved it. I just really like you. I thought you weren't serious when you came in but now I realise you are."

Honey told host Dermot O'Leary after closing the first live show of the series: "I'm just having the time of my life, I just don't want it to end."

After the main show on Xtra Factor, Honey was joined by a special guest: Her mum.

Dressing in a white T-shirt branded with 'Honey G' and one of her daughter's now trademark caps, 'Mamma G' said: "On behalf of my family, I want to say we are so proud of her tonight."

She told Xtra Factor hosts Rylan Clark and Matt Edmondson: "We admire her tenacity and courage."

Honey G's performance went down a storm on last night's live show but will she avoid tonight's elimination?

The X Factor 2016 airs live this evening again from 8PM on ITV.
