Here is what Honey G and Amal Clooney have in common

One a human rights barrister and the other this year’s X Factor ‘joke act’.

And what do they have in common I hear you ask?

They both went to the same school.

Honey G, whose real name is Anna Georgette Gilford, was a pupil at Dr. Challoner's in Little Chalfont, Buckinghamsire, along with Amal Clooney, who was of course known by her maiden name Alamuddin at the time.

Although Amal is three years older than Anna they would have attended the college at the same time, even passed each other in the same halls.
