While the pair are largely considered to be the novelty acts of their respective shows, that didn’t stop Ed from making a dig about Honey in an interview with the Daily Star.
“I’m definitely aware of Honey G. I’ve seen a couple of YouTube videos,” he said.
“I am not sure what to say! As Craig would say: ‘OMG!’ All I will say is that I think I am getting better.”
Honey responded to his comments live on Saturday (19 November) night’s ‘X Factor’, after host Dermot O’Leary asked if she had a message for him.
“I’d like to challenge Ed Balls to a dance off, challenge me any day,” she said. “He knows where I am.”
Now this we have to see.
It was another successful week for Honey G on ‘The X Factor’, winning a standing ovation from the judges for her mash up of ‘It’s Like That’ and ‘Getting Jiggy With It’.
Even Simon Cowell was won over, telling her: “A lot of people have called me this week and asking are you judging her based on talent, maybe it’s time for a reality check. Here’s the truth. I love you. I don’t know why. You are infectious.
“Is it the best thing I have ever heard? No? do I look forward to you coming back? Yes. It’s time to rip up the rule book.”

’The X Factor’ continues on Sunday at 8pm on ITV.
