X Factor 2016: Honey G is 'totally real' insists Freddy Parker


The X Factor's Honey G really is a genuine urban artist.

While her real name might not actually be Honey G - it's Anna Georgette Gilford - she isn't an actress.

According to most recent X Factor evictee, Honey is the real deal.

Freddy Parker said after his exit on Sunday night: "I'm going to say it again: she is a genuine urban artist."

He told DigitalSpy: "She is really genuine and really real. I've lived with her, she is that person - everyone turns it up for TV, but she's so real in the house.

"Yeah, she speaks like that. Yeah, she does, she actually does [wear her cap and sunglasses]."

Some viewers were angry after Honey G avoided elimination on Sunday as Freddy went home, but he wasn't at all bitter.

"It's The X Factor it's not a singing /musician competition," Freddy claimed. "She makes so many people happy when she performs. As an entertainer, that's the best thing that you can do. And in her own way she has The X Factor.

"I don't think she'll win it. I think when it gets really serious, the finals are really serious, the public will vote for a more serious act."

Meanwhile Freddy is excited about the future after his short stay in this year's live finals.

"I'm just going to work so hard and take every opportunity I can and get all of my songs out there. Nicole was saying she was going to support me and I have her number and everything," he said.

The X Factor 2016 is back next Saturday and Sunday night on ITV at 8PM.

The theme is divas and there will be guest performances from Shawn Mendes and John Legend.
