X Factor 2012: Chris Maloney angers bosses by snubbing Robbie Williams

Chris Maloney (X Factor 2012)

X Factor star Chris Maloney has reportedly angered show bosses by snubbing Robbie Williams!

Take That star Robbie made a visit with the X Factor acts this ahead of their fourth live performance tonight, and Robbie's own performance on Sunday night's results show.

As well as chatting with the acts and giving them tips, Robbie also spent hours filming with the finalists for tonight's show.

But Chris Maloney decided to take a trip up to Liverpool to see his family and ill nan, and missed Robbie.

We're not sure what the problem is, especially when family are involved, but producers weren't too happy.

“Bosses were furious. Robbie’s masterclass was a big deal and to miss it is unforgivable," a source said, seemingly taking things very seriously.

They added: "Now we have to explain why he isn’t there on the show this weekend.”

We're sure they'll find a way...
