XFactor 2012: Kye Sones blasts 'outsider' Chris Maloney

Chris Maloney (X Factor 2012)

Eliminated X Factor act Kye Sones isn't taking his rejection well, hitting out at rival Christopher Maloney this week.

Kye became the latest star to leave the show in Sunday's X Factor 2012 results, after appearing in the bottom two for the second time with Rylan Clark.

The judges once again sent the vote to deadlock, with Kye leaving having received the fewest public votes.

The elimination left Gary Barlow with just Christopher in his category, and it sounds like the Liverpudlian singer hasn't made many fans backstage.

Speaking to The Sun, Kye said today: "All of us have got really close and then you’ve got Chris. We’ve been a really strong group and he’s been an outsider — and that’s nothing to do with any of us lot.

“He’s very tactical. There are two different people — one when cameras are there and one when they’re not there.”

And he bitched: “I’m just glad that, from day one, I have not lied and have been very honest and that was my main thing and I can walk away with my head held high.”

Asked how Chris had avoided the bottom two so far, Kye quipped: “God knows. He must have an expensive phone bill!”


The X Factor continues with its live shows this weekend with a Best Of British theme.

Sunday's results show will feature performances from One Direction and Little Mix, as well as one more act being given the boot.
