X Factor's Honey G has bagged herself a big new gig... in panto this Christmas.

She's said to star in the role of the Fairy Godmother - or Fairy G - in a production of Sleeping Beauty in Hastings.


“We’re delighted to have Honey G in our panto,” an insider at the White Rock Theatre told the Daily Star newspaper. “She will bring such a modern take to a classic fairytale."

The insider added: "She is sure to pull in the crowds.”

Tickets for the show, on stage between December 15 and 31 later this year, are already on sale.

For now, Honey G's currently on The X Factor tour and awaiting news of her potential second single.

Last year's X Factor hopeful released her debut track in December, but it's fair to say it didn't set the charts alight.

The Honey G show made a tragic debut at Number 149 in the official charts.


However Honey G isn't one to give up.

"I really want to start collaborating with some US hip-hop artists like Missy Elliott," she declared following the flop.

And if Missy Elliott is busy, Honey G told the Daily Star newspaper other names on her wish list are the likes of Jay Z, Lil' Wayne, Timbaland, Alicia Keys and Mary J Blige.

"I really see collaborating with a US hip-hop artist as the next step," Honey G explained.

She went on dismiss taking part in any other reality TV shows such as I'm A Celebrity or Big Brother.


"It's not going to be good for my street cred, my reputation," she said. "I want to perform globally, release and sell millions of records, and reality TV is not for me, I'm afraid.

"Big Brother, or the jungle, it's not for me."
