Last weekend, fans watched as Sharon Osbourne selected Honey G - real name Anna Georgette Gilford - to be one of her three finalists, while choosing to send Samantha home from Judges' Houses.
A whopping 13,000 people have now signed a petition calling for Honey G to be removed from this weekend's live shows and replaced with Samantha. However, although it was started by her cousin, Samantha has taken a step away from it.
Speaking to BBC Humberside, Samantha insisted Honey G "deserves her right to be in the competition as much as anyone else". She added that she and Honey had become "friends" during their time on the show.
Meanwhile, one person who has spoken out against Sharon's decision is Loose Women panelist Coleen Nolan. While discussing this year's finalists, Coleen said she believes Honey G is "not real", and is playing us all.
"I think it's somebody who is trying to show the show up," she said. "That looks like a wig. She'll take the wig and glasses off and be an amazing singer."
