X Factor 2016: Nicole Scherzinger doesn't think Honey G has a chance of winning


Nicole Scherzinger says she doesn't think Honey G has a chance of winning The X Factor.

The Pussycat Doll has echoed Simon Cowell's comments from the weekend after Honey G beat her act Ryan Lawrie in the latest sing off.

Nicole said: “I don’t know how much longer Honey G is going to be in this competition. I’m not the one voting for her, the people are.”

She added to The Sun newspaper: “I don’t think she’s going to win the show.

“She’s only going to get so far as she can take herself and as much as she keeps connecting with the audience.”

On Sunday night, Simon told Honey G she would need a miracle to win the show... even though he saved her from the axe.

Simon said on the Xtra Factor of his decision to save Honey G over Ryan: “You have to make a call in the moment, and I think if we’re being honest with each other, watching the show last night, I can see a very very clear three or four people who’ve got a real shot.

“I don’t think Ryan would have gone any further. I think he’s done brilliant to go as far as he has… Whatever you do, you’re going to be unpopular, but the truth is, unless Honey performs a miracle, she’s not going to win this show.”

However a confident Honey told the ITV2 spin off she was sure of still being able to make it to Wembley Arena.

She said: "I've still got my eye on the prize, I'm a fighter, I've always been a fighter and I'm determined to fight my way into the final ."

The X Factor is back next Saturday and Sunday night on ITV.
