As The X Factor 2016 final nears, rumours have begun to circulate about possible duets.

Six contestants currently remain in the competition but only a final three will make it through to the final next month.

As is tradition, a 'superstar' duet is being lined up for each of them and it's been claimed Honey G could end up singing with Vanilla Ice.

It makes sense after her performance of his song Ice, Ice, baby earlier in the live shows.

A source said today: “Around this time in the live rounds, show bosses start looking into potential acts for the traditional finalists’ collaborations.

“Vanilla Ice is being seriously considered and he’s bang up for it, too."

It's not quite up there with the huge duets that we've seen in the past, but producers are supposedly struggling to find anyone else.

While Snoop Dog has said he'll duet with Honey G, the insider told The Sun newspaper: “X Factor bosses accept they’ll struggle to find current big-name rappers to perform with Honey G."

The source added: "You can imagine Honey G and Vanilla Ice would be an amazing spectacle.”

Of course it all depends on Honey G actually making the final in December at Wembley.

This week is Movies night and Honey G will be battling against Emily Middlemas, Ryan Lawrie, Matt Terry, Saara Aalto and 5 After Midnight to stay in the competition.

Bookies have installed Ryan as the favourite to leave.

The X Factor 2016 airs Saturday and Sunday night on ITV 8PM.
