Speaking about her weight loss to the Daily Star, the rapper said: “The weight loss has definitely given me the confidence to put myself out there.

“I’ve always had a bit of a complex about my weight and now I can shop in the likes of Topshop and Miss Selfridge.

“I used to be size 16 to 18 but I recently bought a pair of size 12 trousers which feels so good.”

Honey G also revealed how her new look has given her confidence to look for love again.

She said: “The weight loss is making me feel better about myself and it's nice to wear something more revealing and sexy and know I can strut my thing.

“I have been dating during lockdown but I've not quite found what I'm looking for at the moment.”

She continued: “I am of course looking for a woman who is attractive but also someone that I can have intelligent conversation with and share my sporting interests with too.”

Honey G first found fame in 2016, when she became a much talked about contestant on the 13th series of The X Factor.

After she was taken under the wing of judge Sharon Osborne, Honey came in fifth place in the singing competition, despite dividing viewers.

Four years on and Honey has recently released a single called Waiting For Your Love, which shows off a completely different side to the Honey G we knew before.

Speaking about the track, she said: “It's really going to shock my fans.

“I sing mostly on the track as well as a rap bridge. It's a love song basically.”
