The culprits have been revealed.

Following Honey G’s performance of MC Hammer’s ‘Can’t Touch This’ on The X Factor, the controversial act appeared to have her stage invaded.

Three men rushed onto the stage, with one grabbing the mic from Honey while the camera cut away to the judges. 

Simon Cowell later apologised to the ‘rapper’, saying: “I’m so sorry about that, are you ok? I thought that was part of the act. I was quite worried.”

A number of fans also spotted something unnatural.

However since the incident, YouTubers Trollstation have taken full responsibility for the invasion, with prankster Daniel Jarvis 'revealing' himself on Facebook.

"Making my X factor debut today so excited," he said.

The pranksters then posted some footage from their Twitter account:
