Honey G exited the competition the following night
Fans of X Factor were shocked this weekend when an intruder stormed the stage during the live show on Saturday.
Prankster group Trollstation, founded by Gravesender Daniel Jarvis, took credit for the stunt, which saw a man take to the stage while controversial rapper Honey G was receiving feedback from the show’s judges.
During judge Louis Walsh’s comments on her efforts, the man, dressed in a baseball cap, ran up behind her, grabbed her shoulders and tried to take her microphone.
But it was later revealed there had been five people involved in the incident.
An X Factor spokesman said: “There was a stage invasion by four men, with one further person in support. All five had been in the audience.
“They were spoken to by police and security and have now been removed from the studio.”
Trollstation tweeted their involvement, posting a video of the stage rush captioned: “X Factor invasion.
X Factor producers have denied suggestions that the stunt was stage.
Meanwhile Bromley act Matt Terry, who is favourite to win the competition, eased through to the next round of the competition.
