On today's episode of Loose Women, the panel spoke about this weekend's X Factor results show, which saw Honey G saved in the sing off over Ryan Lawrie.

That decision annoyed some fans who still don't think Honey G deserves to be in the competition, but Coleen has suggested it was the right decision based on the two sing off performances.

Coleen said: "When she was in the sing off at the end, I thought she would go. But in actual fact, if they're judging it on the sing off, [Ryan] sang the whole first verse of that song in a different key. Not just out of tune, but in a different key."

Honey G got through to the next round.

The programme then played a clip of Ryan's performance... but, oops! It was the wrong clip: the video showed Ryan singing Oasis' 'Stop Crying Your Heart Out' in a previous sing off, rather than this weekend's Ed Sheeran number.

Coleen added: "Everyone is up in arms about Honey G but whether you like her or hate her, she's the one who comes out every week and she does entertain. She doesn't profess to be the best singer, she's a rap star… she'll get the best reaction on the tour."

Fellow panelist Andrea McLean said her ten-year-old thought Honey G being saved was a great thing, while Jane Moore remarked: "It happens every year: Jedward, Rylan, Chico, Wagner… there's always one."

The judges voted to save Honey G, apart from Ryan's mentor Nicole Scherzinger, who wanted to save him.

Ryan, meanwhile, has said Honey deserved to get through to the next round.

"To be honest, I'm just proud of myself for getting this far," said Ryan.

"Honey G puts the work in just as much as any of us do so no, I don't think she deserved to go. I think Honey G deserved to stay as she has worked really hard and deserves it as much as any of us."

"I'm feeling good and really excited and I can't wait to see what the future holds," he added.

"The highlight has been the whole thing, just being on X Factor. I'm so thankful I managed to come sixth in the competition and thank you to every person on the show as you have changed my life."

X Factor continues Saturday at 8pm on ITV.
