X Factor 2012: Louis Walsh really has a problem with Chris Maloney!

Chris Maloney (X Factor 2012)

X Factor's Louis Walsh has compared Chris Maloney to Cilla Black, claiming that the Liverpool singer is outdated.

Louis hasn't tried to hide his opinions about Chris, and continued to complain about the 44-year-old this week.

He said: "I’m not into cabaret artists. Christopher Maloney is very dated and old fashioned. He’s like Cilla Black!"

Louis continued: "He couldn’t handle the truth. Tulisa was right to have a go at him about his dated song choices for Christopher. He just couldn’t accept it."

The Irish music mogul also claimed that he was teaching his acts to be professionals, unlike the likes of Rylan Clark and Lucy Spraggan!

Speaking to the official ITV1 X Factor website, Louis said: "To be honest, clubs aren’t my thing. People go there to get drunk and be papped.

"I’m wary of those sorts of places. During the show; I go back to Dublin for three days to rest and spend the rest of the week with my acts. My job is to mentor them, not go out on the razz. I want my Groups to be professional and get up early in the morning so I really don’t encourage that sort of behaviour.

And Louis, who lost his first act last week, added: "I really miss Charlie form MK1. I never thought they’d win the show but I was hoping that they’d be in the competition until at least week 6. They’re talented and fresh. MK1 turned out be much nicer people than I thought they would be."
