Honey G sparks new fix claims during X Factor results show
Honey G’s comments during Sunday’s X Factor results show have once again sparked claims that the themes are a complete fix.
It was not long ago that the X Factor jukebox was accused of being rigged, after the supposedly ‘random’ wheel landed on the theme ‘Fright Night’ just in time for Halloween.
Previously, host Dermot O’Leary, who is responsible for spinning the jukebox wheel, defended the show. He told Digital Spy: “Of course it’s not rigged. People kept saying to me, ‘Oh, it’s fixed’… It’s the most rudimentary hamster wheel you’ve ever seen in your life.”
We’re not too sure how he’ll defend this one, however…
At the end of the results show, Ant and Dec announced the next week’s theme from the I’m A Celebrity jungle. They revealed that the next show would be Movie themed but, when Dermot turned to the contestants for their reaction, it seemed Honey G was already well aware of the news.
Asked how she felt about the song choice, the controversial rapper admitted she already had an “amazing track” planned for the following week, despite the theme only being confirmed mere seconds beforehand.
She said: “Yeah really really excited can’t wait, know I’ve got an amazing track lined up, it’s going to be sick.”
Well, looks like this one can join the long list of fix claims against the X Factor. How many more should we expect before this series is over?!
Samantha Lavery was forced to depart from the competition this weekend, after being voted into the bottom two alongside Ryan Lawrie. And now the final is drawing ever closer as just six contestants remain… and both Simon and Louis’ categories could be in trouble as they are left with just one act each.
X Factor continues Saturday at 8pm on ITV.
