X Factor 2012: Christopher Maloney insists he's not a diva

Chris Maloney (X Factor 2012)

X Factor's Christopher Maloney has hit back at claims he's a diva.

The singer has come under plenty of fire recently, with eliminated acts and even the judges claiming he;s hard to to handle behind the scenes.

But Chris insisted that he's actually one of the nicest members of this year's line up!

Chris revealed that Louis Walsh had even apologised for branding him a diva on the Xtra Factor earlier this series.

"He said 'I'm sorry I was put on the spot and you popped into my head, cos you're popular with the public. it will get you into the papers anyway', which it it has, but for the wrong reasons.," Chris said.

However he added: "I want to concentrate on the competition and be positive, but it gets me down."

Instead, Chris claimed that he was nothing but polite to the show's crew and other finalists.

"If anything, it's the other way around," he said. "I make everyone tea! Me nan would give me a good hiding if I behaved like that."

Chris concluded: "All I'm doing is going out there and singing my heart out and hopefully I'm entertaining everyone."


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.
