The 36-year-old wannabe rapper has seen her career take off since she won over the hearts of the nation while competing on 'The X Factor' last year and she has admitted she can't believe how well she's doing and never expected it to happen so fast.

Speaking exclusively to BANG Showbiz, she said: "It's been amazing. After 'The X Factor' I have done about 16/17 club shows to sell out shows.

"I did the arena tour and uni tour. Done my first show in Manchester. Been really busy. Shooting for a TV advert and got a lot of work cut out for me.

"I am living the dream. My latest single has been released. Really pushing that forward and concentrating on my music right now."

And, although she has her hands full with her music career now, Honey G - whose real name is Anna Georgette Gilford - still makes time to watch this year's 'The X Factor'.

She explained: "I've always been a fan of 'The X Factor' and I am really enjoying it. It really starts to hot up when it comes to six chair challenge and the judges are always careful who they select. Hard for the judges. Probably one of the hardest things the judges have to do. It's quite cut throat the challenge.

"I really enjoy it and it's nice to see the judges. I'm very grateful for the judges because if it wasn't for them I wouldn't be where I am now."
