Piers Morgan: Honey G is 'grotesque'

Piers Morgan finds 'X Factor' contestant Honey G "grotesque".

The 35-year-old rapper - real name Anna Georgette Gilford - has been dividing the public with her performances on the ITV talent competition, and a number of celebrities have spoken out about her unique style of entertainment, with the 51-year-old TV presenter branding her the "worst act" he's ever seen on the show.

He said: "The Honey G thing makes me physically vomit.

"They keep talking about her being a unique artist. She is uniquely diabolical. I have never seen a worse act on 'The X Factor' or any talent show!

"If I had been on that panel, I would have buzzed her off in about three seconds. The fact that she is still there is grotesque. She is showing no sign of improvement. If anything there has been a marked deterioration the more show performs."

Piers also compared Honey G to 'Strictly Come Dancing' contestant Ed Balls, who, despite consistently finding himself at the bottom of the leaderboard, has been showing signs of "improvement".

He continued: "(With) Ed Balls on 'Strictly', at least you see some growth, some development, some improvement! He is incredibly entertaining in a way I just don't get it with Honey G."

And the outspoken star has even offered to step in as a "guest judge" in order to get Honey G off the show, as he says the current judging panel - Simon Cowell, Sharon Osbourne, Louis Walsh, and Nicole Scherzinger - "have all lost their marbles".

Speaking to Digital Spy, Piers said: "I just don't get Honey G. I don't find it funny, I don't find it entertaining. I think all the judges have all lost their marbles.

"They need a reality check which may have to be me coming in as a guest judge for one show just to get rid of her! I'm available!"
