X Factor 2016: 'Honey G's ego is out of control and is causing tension on set'


X Factor 2016 contestant Honey G's behaviour is reportedly grating on her fellow acts.

Just seven singers now remain in the competition this year and Honey G has become one of the favourites to win.

Bookies now have her behind only Matt Terry and Emily Middlemas, putting her on course to make the final next month.

But behind the scenes, Honey G's supposed 'diva behaviour' is said to be out of control and annoying the other singers.

"Honey G is the only act who gets her own dressing room," a source told star magazine. "Anything the G wants, the G gets. Her ego is out of control.

"Production assistants are all over her, while other contestants fend for themselves."

Supposedly, tensions between Honey G and the other acts are 'sky high' off camera.

"There is such an atmosphere backstage now that she's become the favourite, and the other contestants are getting angry," the source claimed. "There are whispers that it's Honey G who is worth most to the show, when she's seen as the more novelty act."

However a spokesperson told the magazine that the claims Honey had her own dressing room weren't true and added: "No one gets preferential treatment."

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

As well as new performances from the final seven acts, there will be guest appearances from Olly Murs and Nathan Sykes.
