People say Honey G is a fake – but is she really Sonia Fowler from off EastEnders??
Theories continue to divide X Factor viewers
Honey G has divided viewers since her first appearance on The X Factor .
Her bizarre sense of style and questionable vocal talents have left fans of the show debating whether she should have a place on the live shows.
But is she really Natalie Cassidy who plays Sonia Fowler/Jackson in EastEnders?
There’s no denying that the rapper is a pull for viewers, who are keen to see what on earth she’s going to do next.
Who doesn’t want to see Honey G attempt Big Band week?
Even axed contestants Yes Lad have claimed that they thought that the rapper was actually planted by producers as a prank.
Despite her appearance, in real life Anna Gilford is actually a middle-class, former competitive tennis player from Harrow, who has a masters degree in management and runs her own recruitment company.
Not very Honey G-like is it?
But is that just a cover story?
Is she really Sonia Fowler?
Sonia Fowler from off EastEnders?
On her LinkedIn profile, 35-year-old Anna is unrecognisable as the manager of recruitment firm ARG Search Ltd who has spent more than a decade working in IT.
Gilford is also described as a tennis champion in 1992, a flag holder at the North American Maccabi Games in 1996 and an avid netball player.
Her interests are listed as windsurfing, skiing, boxing, spinning, swimming and running.
Her recent comments about her “failing business” have only fuelled the rumours further – is she just desperate to make a quick buck?
If she is Sonia Fowler then maybe it is just a celebrity stunt and will be revealed later in the show.
But is she really Sonia Fowler or not?
Of all the theories about Honey G, the idea that she might just be someone famous playing a trick on the public has to be the wildest.
Thousands rushed to Twitter to suggest that the star looked suspiciously like former Prime Minister David Cameron , with one fan suggesting it can’t be a coincidence that they’ve never been in the same room together.
While others have claimed on social media that the rapper could just be Peter Kay in disguise.
Basically, will the real Honey G please stand up?
We say that Honey G could very well be – Sonia Fowler – Natalie Cassidy
X Factor viewers are struggling to believe that contestant Honey G is a real act following her unusual audition over the weekend.
Rapper Anna Georgette Gilford, who is from ‘North Weezy’, became a talking point as the singing contest returned – thanks to her version of Missy Elliott’s song Work It…complete with dance moves.
Her rendition rendered Simon Cowell utterly speechless, while those at home questioned whether the 35-year-old is genuine or not.
Former Big Brother star Aisleyne Horgan-Wallace led the comments – declaring the audition had to be a joke.
The star – who is known for using slang herself – tweeted: “Honey G is ME if I was to audition ???????????????????????????? 100% she’s doing this for a joke #XFactor.”
She wasn’t the only one to suggest it was all a joke though as fans of the show took to social media in their droves to comment on it.
“Watching Saturday’s X Factor… This Honey G has got to be a joke surely???,” wrote one.
Remind you of anybody? It looks like yours truly – Honey G
Her posh background and bizarre sunglasses and bomber jacket get-up have lead fans to believe that she’s nothing more than a joke act.
The wannabe rapper has always claimed she’s the “realest chick in the game” but new comments from her fellow contestants just might prove that she’s not as real as she wants us to believe.
Lovebirds Emily Middlemas and Ryan Lawrie have now called Honey G a “character”.
“She’s actually really smart. She’s created a character that people seem to love,” Ryan told OK! magazine.
Emily agreed, revealing that Honey G is very different at home in the X Factor house.
“As soon as we’re home, her sunglasses come off and her hair goes up,” Emily said.
“She’s quite quiet in the house, she spends a lot of time in her room but when she is about she’s very sociable.”
Honey G has hit out at her “haters” who say she is fake.
“Haters who say I’m not real, these guys just need to check themselves,” she said on Radio 1.
“They just don’t mean nothing to me.”
X Factor returns on Saturday night at 8pm on ITV.
