HONEY G looked incredible as she stepped out last night – almost unrecognisable to the woman who found fame on X Factor five years ago.

The 40-year-old, real name Anna Gilford, has completely transformed her appearance after switching up her image and dropping two stone.

Dressed in a sheer black top and skinny jeans, the singer turned heads at the opening of Lakeside’s Christmas Wonderland – with no cap or gold chains in sight.

Speaking about her weight loss previously, she told Daily Star: “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.”

Fans will be delighted to see Honey back on TV next year after she landed a place on Celebrity Coach Trip.

Honey finished fifth on 2016’s X Factor and was signed by Simon Cowell’s label Syco.

But she was axed when her debut release The Honey G Show flopped.

The TV star had thought she could combine a music career with selling homes and joined an estate agent in 2019.

Unfortunately, she was sacked after just a few months, telling The Sun: “They didn’t realise how famous I am.

“My boss had told me that he was expecting me to give up my music career which I am obviously not prepared to do.

“Music is my love and passion, and my ambitions are about being a worldwide music artist.

“I had no intention of being an estate agent long-term. I was hoping that a big opportunity for my music career would come in. I do believe I belong on stage.”
