It seems everyone is talking about The X Factor 2016's Honey G - including A-list stars Calvin Harris and Will.i.am.

Reports suggest the North Weezy rapper has already won over hip hop heavyweights 50 Cent and Snoop Dogg.

Now Nicole has revealed that her two superstar pals are more interested in Honey G than her own boys' category.

Speaking on The Jonathan Ross Show, she said: "I had Calvin Harris and will.i.am in the same week text me and say 'Who in the world is Honey G?' and I was like, 'Really, how do you guys know about Honey G?'

"She is the talk of the town and she's a lot of fun. She actually did pretty good last week… I mean the public is the one who's keeping her in so far so you never know. She seems really sweet and her mum is really sweet."

In fact, Honey is doing so good that Nicole reckons she could even emerge as the winner.

Discussing who she reckons is in with a shot, the 'Poison' singer continued: "I think Gifty is doing really well, Gifty and Honey G.

"She's so popular, everyone is talking about her and they want to see what she does every week. And 5 After Midnight, I think they have a good chance as well."

If she does triumph, maybe Calvin or Will could produce her debut album?

The X Factor continues on Saturday at 8.00pm on ITV, when Honey will apparently perform the Men In Black theme song for Fright Night week.

You can watch Nicole's full interview with Jonathan Ross immediately afterwards at 9.50pm.
