Is X Factor’s Honey G real or fake? After weeks of speculation, the truth has been revealed.

Ever since Honey G appeared on The X Factor this year there have been claimed she’s just a prankster.

Even former X Factor champs Little Mix have suggested it’s all a hoax, claiming Honey G is in fact an actress.

Jesy Nelson previously alleged: “She’s just no. I think she’s an actress, I’ve been told she is as well.”

Meanwhile, this week saw Louis Walsh deny that Honey G was in fact David Cameron in a wig during an appearance on Celebrity Juice.

Throughout it all, Honey G - real name Anna Georgette Gilford - has insisted she’s the real deal and sure enough, she wasn’t lying.

‘Honey G' has in fact been around for almost 20 YEARS.

That's right. Honey G began mixing in 1999 and in 2000 spent time performing at infamous summer party place Ayia Napa in Club Abbyss and Gas club.

Honey G then teamed up with MC Krazie Laydee as part of a duo called Female Phenomena who performed alongside Ms Dynamite, before Honey G finished as runner up in the 2002 Ministry of Sound National Student DJ Competition.

In 2013, Honey G released an album called Don't Try which one reviewer described as having a "transcendental quality" and showing a "landmark of musical expansion" by female DJs.

The 25-track record had been available to stream on Spotify and download on iTunes before the show, presumably since being pulled due to competition rules.

So under the assumption that Honey G hasn't been planning the world's most elaborate joke for almost two decades - and six years before The X Factor even begun - we're going to go to declare her 100% real.

The X Factor airs Saturday and Sunday nights on ITV at 8PM.
