X Factor news: Chris Maloney plans "uncle dancing" for club classics week

Chris Maloney (X Factor 2012)

X Factor star Chris Maloney has revealed he plans to show off his "uncle dancing" on this weekend's show.

With a theme of club classics, it's sure to be a tough week for Chris and many of the other contestants, as they are pushed out of their comfort zone.

He tweeted earlier today: "Good morning, getting ready for rehearsals again, want to get this right for you on saturday. Been working so hard as want to make u proud x"

And Chris added: "Can't wait to sing and dance on saturday! Hope i don't dance like an uncle at a wedding lol! Please enjoy ur day, love u you all xx"

But it's not been a good week for Chris, who revealed his nan has been ill.

He tweeted: "I've not been feeling myself these past few days,feel down an stuff, but the love, help an all the support ur giving me is getting me thru x"

He later told his followers: "Right,gonna pick myself up an hopefully nail my performance for u saturday! My nans getting better, but wont be at the show on sat, gutted x"

Meanwhile, Chris has been installed as the favourite to leave [cat c="the x factor"]The X Factor 2012[/cat] this weekend.

Betfair makes Liverpool singer Chris the 3-1 favourite to get the axe, with the wildcard winner leading the betting having failed to impress with his cheesy performances.

However it follows the news yesterday that Chris is topping the X Factor 2012 voting results, with the Daily Star reporting that Chris is leading the pack by a "large margin".

A source told the tabloid: “Liverpool has clearly come out in force to back their man because we’re not sure who else is."

The X Factor 2012 continues this Saturday and Sunday night on ITV1.

This weekend will see the remaining eleven finalists singing tracks with a Club Classics theme, while JLS and Labrinth will guest star on Sunday night's third live results show.
