X Factor 2012 judges: Gary Barlow takes swipe at Tulisa's 'fag ash breath'

Chris Maloney (X Factor 2012)

X Factor judges Gary Barlow and Tulisa clashed on the live shows tonight, with Gary mocking Tulisa's fag ash breath!

Following Chris' performance of Died In Your Arms Tonight by Cutting Crew for tonight's Halloween show, the panel were split.

Nicole Scherzinger said: "Well... that was fun. I felt like I was watching an 80s Halloween pop opera... and that was fun for tonight. I want to give you a hug, you are so precious. Good job on the vocals."

Louis Walsh commented: "Chris, you must be doing something right but we are looking for a future recording star and I think you are a future cabaret, panto star. You remind me of a young Tony Christie."

Tulisa added: "I have to stop having a go at you and let your mentor take some blame for you. Gary, how many of these 80s hits are you going to let him keep destroying? He is getting the same critique every week, why not change it up for him? It’s not working."

But Chris' mentor Gary Barlow hit back: "Tulisa, I don’t know what’s offended me more, what you said or the fag breath!"

A stunned Tulisa was left speechless, before eventually replying: "Lay off the red wine, because I can smell that from here as well."

The latest X Factor results show follows tomorrow evening, which will feature performances from Fun. and Robbie Williams, as well as one more act being given the boot.
