Honey G shocked her fellow X Factor contestants with 'screaming' tantrums, it's been claimed.

Former contestant Gifty Louise spilled on Honey G's behaviour in a new interview following her exit.

In a chat with the Daily Star newspaper, Gifty insisted that Honey G was "genuine" but there was one thing which saw her turn.

"She is genuine, that is exactly how she is in the house," Gifty explained. "She wears the sunglasses everywhere and the hat too.

"She doesn't like people touching her hat or her sunglasses or her jackets."

Gifty claimed to the newspaper that Honey G would "scream" if anyone ever tried to touch her infamous outfit.

Meanwhile, Gifty defended Honey G's presence on the show but suggested it would be a "joke" if she actually won the show.

Gifty, who was eliminated against Four Of Diamonds in the sing off, said: "Honey Gā€¦ she is an entertainer and she brings something special to the show ā€“ in her way.

"Do you know what, if you take her out of the show right now it would be really boring."She does bring the entertainment side to it ā€“ she is definitely going to the final.

"If she won it would make people think X Factor is a joke."

X Factor boss Simon Cowell, who has perhaps surprisingly been one of Honey G's biggest fans, defended the singer this past week.

"Behind the scenes, Honey G is one of the nicest contestants we've ever had on the show," he declared.

The X Factor continues Saturday and Sunday night on ITV at 8PM.
