X Factor 2012: Louis Walsh brands Christopher Maloney a diva... again!

Christopher Maloney (X Factor 2012)

X Factor 2012 judge Louis Walsh has once again hit out at Christopher Maloney, branding him a diva.

Louis previously named Chris as the biggest diva backstage in an interview on the Xtra Factor, but Chris claimed Louis had later apologised.

Chris explained: "He [Louis] 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.”

“If anything, it’s the other way around,” Chris continued. “I make everyone tea! Me nan would give me a good hiding if I behaved like that.”

He added: “All I’m doing is going out there and singing my heart out and hopefully I’m entertaining everyone.”

However in an interview with the official ITV1 X Factor website today, Louis once again complained about Chris: "I don’t get him! He’s very old fashioned. What’s the cheesiest cheese? Cheddar! Yes, he’s vintage cheddar all the way."

Louis added: "In my eyes, he’s definitely the biggest diva behind-the-scenes. From what I hear, he demands the most backstage!"


The X Factor continues with its live shows this weekend with a guilty pleasures theme.

Sunday's results show will feature performances from Alicia Keys and Olly Murs, as well as one more act being given the boot.
