X Factor's Honey G has no chance of Christmas number 1 with her single


Honey G may have a single out this month but she won't be challenging for Christmas number 1.

While some have been willing her to beat actual winner Matt Terry to the festive top spot, Honey G doesn't actually stand a chance.

Her debut single - called The Honey G show - is out on December 23, meaning it won't be in the running for the Christmas Number 1 which will be crowned based on sales and streams between Friday, December 16 and Thursday December 22.

But that of course doesn't mean Honey G is out of the running to grab a number one single at all.

During Saturday night's live final show from Wembley Arena, Honey G had a starring role.

Despite being kicked out of the show two weeks ago, she took centre stage for a mega medley of songs, including her own upcoming single.

Honey G confirmed on Sunday that she had been signed by Simon Cowell's record label and would release her first single later this month, just after the winner.

She tweeted on Sunday night: "I am ecstatic to announce I have been Signed by SYCO, Simon Cowells record label and will be releasing my first single on 23rd December."

Honey G added in a video message to her fans: "I'm shooting the video this week, I'm so happy, I hope everyone goes out and buys the single and supports it... bring on the album!"

Speaking to X Factor host Dermot O'Leary after her performance on the show Honey said: “It felt wicked. I just want to plug my single that’s coming out on December 23 called The Honey G Show.

“Everyone’s got to go out and buy it and support the single. Honey G’s taking over. It’s Honey G time.”

The X Factor airs on ITV.
