Celebrities slam The X Factor after Honey G gets place in live shows
Celebrities – and viewers – have taken to Twitter in their hordes to object to Honey G receiving a place in the live finals of The X Factor.
Over 25s mentor Sharon Osbourne made the controversial decision to place the aspiring rapper in her top three, despite the fact that last week Honey G failed to receive a seat during the Six Chair Challenge and only returned to the show after Ivy Grace Paredes was forced to drop out.
Lord Alan Sugar, who will appear this Thursday on the latest series of The Apprentice, took to Twitter to vent his frustration at Osbourne’s decision.
He asked his 5.22 million followers: “are they taking the P out if the public?”

Meanwhile Geordie Shore star Holly Hagan branded the show “an absolute joke”, after Osbourne decided hopefuls such as Christopher Peyton, Samantha Atkinson, Janet Grogan and James Wilson were less worthy of a place in the live finals.

I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here winner and TV personality Kerry Katona asked if the results were “a joke” in a Twitter rant at the show.

However, comedienne and star of Miranda, Miranda Hart had a different perspective to the rest of us on Honey G’s inclusion.
V clever television to get us all talking about Honey G. BUT if she isn't a comic creation I'm not sure it's right. Am I missing something?
