X Factor 2012: Ella Henderson and Lucy Spraggan aren't keen on Chris Maloney!

Lucy Spraggan (X Factor 2012)

Axed X Factor hopefuls Ella Henderson and Lucy Spraggan don't seem to be fans of Christopher Maloney.

Lucy, who was forced to quit the show due to illness earlier this month, took a rather unsubtle dig at Chris on Twitter today.

She tweeted: "Can't wait to see my lovely boys @JahmeneDouglas, @JamesArthur23, @UnionJworld and @RylanClark smash it up tonight! #lovelypeople"

It was a message later retweeted by Ella Henderson, who was eliminated ahead of Chris last weekend.

It's fair to say that Chris certainly seems to have his enemies on the show.

Speaking after his exit from the show, Kye Sones moaned: “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 MK1 branded Chris the biggest diva behind the scenes, saying: “If there’s not a drink around or he doesn’t get his food on time or go home in the right taxi, then it’s a bit of a nightmare. The simple things that shouldn’t matter, matter to him.”

Even Rylan Clark, who's still on the show, admitted: “Stuff gets exaggerated but there is substance to some of the things that have been printed about Chris.”

X Factor boss Simon Cowell has also been making a few unsubtle comments on Twitter today.

In a rather obvious dig at Christopher Maloney, Simon called on voters to vote for the singers who could become stars.

He tweeted: "To everyone voting in the uk tonight. Please vote for who you believe could be a star next year. It's in your hands."

The X Factor 2012 continues tonight on ITV1 and ITV1HD, with the final five acts sing two tracks each with Abba and Motown themes.

Sunday's results show will see one more act get the axe, and there will be performances from Rhianna and Bruno Mars.
