Cheryl would like to see Honey G win the X Factor

Cheryl has backed Honey G to win the X Factor - but only because her nieces and nephews are fans of the divisive rapper.

The contestant has proved a controversial figure on the show this year, with many claiming she is just a comedy act used by the ITV programme to get ratings.

Speaking to Hello magazine, Cheryl said she doesn't watch the X Factor anymore after leaving her judging role last year. However, she said she wants Honey G to win, purely for her family.

The singer said: "No I haven’t [been watching the X Factor] – should I be? I have heard a lot about Honey G though. My nieces and nephews think she is great and I really hope she wins, just for them."
