The X Factor 2012 judges have branded Christopher Maloney a diva backstage.
Speaking on the Xtra Factor last night, the judges were quizzed on who was the biggest trouble maker behind the scenes.
"No, Rylan is not a diva at all backstage," Louis said. "I think Chris from Liverpool is a bit of a diva. That's what I'm hearing."
Gary was quick to try and shut Louis up, saying: "Guys, we got into backstage gossip last year and it got us into a lot of trouble, so let's not go there again."
Also speaking on the Xtra Factor yesterday, Chris hit back at the comments, claiming they were "tactical".
He told Olly Murs and Caroline Flack: “I think it is tactical. To be honest with you Louis only sees me when I’m on stage. You know how hard I work behind the scenes and stuff so I think it’s very tactical.”
He added: “Swear down, honest to God. Take no notice of what Louis’ saying, because he’s got it in for me one way or another!
“He has said a few negative things."
The X Factor 2012 continues this Saturday night on ITV1, with the results show following on Sunday night with performances from Taylor Swift and Rebecca Ferguson.
