Christopher Maloney (X Factor 2012)

X Factor's Christopher Maloney is reportedly annoyed with mentor Gary Barlow.

The Take That star kicked off his solo tour last week, and with shows all the way through to January it's frustrated Chris, the last of Gary's overs.

The Daily Mirror report that Chris has compalined to bosses after claiming to haven not heard from Gary all week.

A source explained: “Gary’s currently working on his solo tour while he performs his duties as an X Factor judge and mentor.

“But Chris has been saying he’s annoyed that he’s had no contact with Gary all week."

The supposed insider added to the tabloid: “He’s been feeling neglected and doesn’t want this to have a negative impact on his performance on this week’s show.”

It was previously reported that the show's producer were less than impressed with Gary's decision to start playing gigs in the middle of the live shows.

A source revealed last month: “Gary is set to tour the UK from 13 November to 8 January and there is a worry that he won’t be able to give his acts the attention they need.

“It’s not exactly going to help relations between him and Simon.”

A spokesperson played down the claims however, insisting: “We work with the judges’ teams to schedule around any commitments they have.”
