'I really hope she wins!' 'Pregnant' Cheryl backs Honey G to triumph on The X Factor... but admits she's yet to see the rapper perform 

Her colourful shell suits, jaunty baseball caps and rather unique interpretation of mainstream hip hop has polarised fans of long-running talent show The X Factor.

But while Honey G continues to fend off growing criticism of her ability to avoid elimination, the self-styled rapper has received a morale boosting show of support from former judge Cheryl.

The Fight For This Love singer, 33, has backed Honey – real name Anna Gilford – to win the thirteenth series of the enduringly popular ITV show, despite having never seen her perform.

A show of support: Cheryl has backed divisive rapper Honey G to win the current series of The X Factor

Look chic in Cheryl's Rachel Zoe jumpsuit

Rachel Zoe has styled A-listers like Cameron Diaz, Jennifer Garner, Kate Hudson and Liv Tyler, so it's no surprise that her eponymous clothes line has been super successful too.

Here, Cheryl is wearing a chic blue jumpsuit from the collection, featuring a smart tuxedo style neckline and on-trend wide leg trousers.

Rachel Zoe is known for her vintage influences that always come with a clever modern twist and this jumpsuit is a classic example. The wide legs and tassel belt give a nod to the seventies whilst the tuxedo style top freshens it up for the season.

The great news is it's still available to buy, plus it's now reduced to £240.69 at Lord and Taylor (click right).

Speaking to the latest issue of Hello, Cheryl - who is rumoured to be expecting her first child with boyfriend Liam Payne - referenced the divisive rapper when asked if she has watched The X Factor following her departure from the judging panel in 2015.

'No I haven’t – should I be?' she said. '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.' 

Cheryl's support comes after Honey escaped the axe on Sunday evening's results show following a bottom two sing-off with Scottish singer Ryan Lawrie.

Reflecting on his departure during an appearance on Lorraine, Ryan admitted he found it hard to understand Honey during their time together on the ITV show - before comparing her to comedian Leigh Francis' notorious Keith Lemon alter-ego.

'To be honest, I personally use Keith Lemon as a good example,' he explained referring to the Celebrity Juice presenter.

'I think it's a character she portrays,' he added, before explaining that he found it hard to get to know his rival.

'I don't really see her in the (X Factor) house, she keeps herself to herself,' he added. 

Appearing on This Morning later this day, Ryan elaborated, explaining: 'I feel there are two sides like a split personality. The accent changed – sometimes she will be really posh, sometimes street talk. I think she’s really smart and she knows what she’s doing.'

He added that he knew his time on the show was up when he found out who he was up against in the sing off.

'As soon as I was in with Honey G I knew I was going to go,' he said. 'I just felt like the whole entertaining, big production values is more what’s wanted than me. 

'It is a bit frustrating whenever you’re trying your hardest.'
