X Factor star Honey G has been caught flogging tickets to her tour for under a fiver.

The rapper, who came out as gay earlier this year, has struggled to find a fanbase after she was knocked out of the show last year.

She had been criticised for being a ‘joke’ act on the show, with fans claiming she had no real talent.

But the north Londoner hit back at the claims – refusing to appear on Celebrity Big Brother and choosing to focus on her music.

Now an ad has appeared on discount site Wowcher for her UK tour that suggests things are going less than well.

The money-saving voucher site has teamed up with Honey G to help her sell VIP Meet and Greets to her gigs at half price.

Tickets were originally priced as £10, but have since been slashed to just £4.50.

Wowcher claims the exclusive four quid tickets are aimed at Honey G ‘super fans’.

And if you’d like to know what the pounds will get you, then the 36-year-old will performing such hits as The Honey G Show and Hit You With The Honey G.

Alternatively, you could pitch for two litres of Strongbow from Sainsbury’s, a small white wine, or half a Nando’s.

Or you could save it.

Rapper G came out as gay in an interview with The Sun today – while posing for a nude photoshoot.

The rapper explained: “I do worry about homophobia, but I feel now is the right time to, you know, let people know that I’m gay.”

She added: “At my very first audition, Simon asked me if I had a boyfriend. I said no and that I was single. I wasn’t really ready at that point to announce my sexuality to the world.

“Being new to the music industry, and being on The X Factor, I think I was just a bit shy and a bit guarded. I was a bit worried about what people would think as well.

“I was just a bit worried about people maybe being homophobic. I wasn’t ready to come out to the public at that point.”
