XFactor 2012: Gary Barlow believes Chris Maloney can win

Gary Barlow (The X Factor 2012)

X Factor judge Gary Barlow has said he believes Chris Maloney can win the show.

After Kye Sones was eliminated on the show at the weekend, Chris is now Gary's only hope of winning the series, so he doesn't really have much choice.

Speaking on the Xtra Factor, Gary told his fellow judges: “All of us believe we have the winner, we have to, because that’s how we go about this competition.”

The Take That star added: “You can’t go out every week thinking ‘I’ve definitely got third pace.’ We want to win.”

But even Gary had to confess he wasn't sure how Chris would fair in the charts if he were to win the show.

However he insisted: "Christopher hasn’t been in the bottom two!

"We don’t know what any of them are going to do after the competition.

"He’s getting the votes, he’s still here every week.”
