Week after week X Factor's surprise Hip Hop sensation Honey G is wiping the smile off critics faces by remaining the public's favourite.

She was on frightening form at the Halloween special with her Men In Black performance where HELLO! caught up with her backstage.

And in the exclusive interview she admitted despite being overwhelmed with her growing celebrity fanbase, she has one eye firmly on the prize.

"Bring it on basically," said Honey G

"I am completely overwhelmed from the support from the public and on social media," the recruitment consultant and DJ from Harrow told HELLO!

"As well as having fans I want to create awareness about rap music and I hope I am one step closer to that now. It's overwhelmingly amazing that 50 Cent has come forward and endorsed me and obviously Snoop Dogg who wants to record a track with me, so yes bring it on basically.

"I'm on for collaborating with big American hip hop artists. I'm also very interested in Missy Elliott too. If I got to the final and could collaborate with anyone it would hopefully be Missy Elliott."

"If I got to the final and could collaborate with anyone it would hopefully be Missy Elliott," she said

But while she has made promises of buying her mentor a private jet if she wins the whole show, she admitted she has a few practical matters to take in hand before then.

"It's true I have promised Mrs O a private jet, but I've got a few bills to pay first and will have to cross that off first. Really what I want is the record deal with Syco and that's what I've really got my heart set on.

"My album will probably be rap music. I get on really well with the Syco team and the music that we are making at the moment is a result of really magical teamwork. If I get a record deal with Syco we are going to make some big, big beats."

Honey G has promised to buy her mentor Sharon Osbourne a private jet if she wins

So how will she spend Christmas celebrating if she wins?

"Bloody hell – if I win it depends… if I am busy doing gigs and getting paid I will be busy making paper."

As young fans rushed over to ask for selfies and demand follows on Instagram, Honey G added: "My family have been amazing and really, really supportive. My mum has come on Xtra Factor and said how proud of me they all are and they admire my bravery and tenacity. They are very supportive of me and X Factor.

"It's amazing for me to know I have captured people's hearts and that people are rooting for me and voting for me."
