HONEY G’s failed knee slide will go down as one of the most cringe-worthy moments in X Factor history, however the rapper revealed that she rehearsed the celebratory manoeuvre, which begs the question, how did she know she’d need it?
Speaking exclusively to Dan Wootton for The Sun’s Facebook Live, the Harrow IT consultant turned wannabe rap superstar explained how the mishap was down to a last minute wardrobe change.
“Basically during the rehearsals I was wearing tracksuit bottoms” said the 35-year-old.
“At the last minute I had a wardrobe change and was asked to wear some leather trousers which unfortunately stuck to the surface which is why the knee slide didn’t come off the way it was supposed to come off.”
The contestants are apparently only told the results live on ITV when they have all been tallied up during the Sunday night show, so why was Honey G rehearsing celebrating progressing to the next round earlier in the day?
This isn’t the only time that the controversial contestant whose real name is Anna Georgette Gilford has had people wondering whether the show is fixed.
The latest in a string of claims came on Sunday’s results show when she proudly told host Dermot O’Leary she had a great song choice for next Saturday’s programme – moments after the theme was picked live on stage.
