X Factor 2012: One Direction's Louis Tomlinson hits out at "nasty" Chris Maloney

Chris Maloney (X Factor 2012)

One Direction's Louis Tomlinson clearly isn't a fan of Christopher Maloney, branding the X Factor 2012 hopeful "nasty" this evening.

Tonight saw Christopher perform Fernando by Abba as one of this two songs, and former X Factor finalist Louis was quick to hit out at the Liverpudlian singer.

He tweeted: "Christopher Maloney showing his nasty side, no sympathy what so ever. He has to go tomorrow!"

The judges weren't much more complimentary either.

Nicole Scherzinger remarked: "That was a lovely theatrical piece, it was very beautiful. Very good vocals, but it was a little bit of a snoozer for me... but you work really hard and that’s what I ask for."

Louis Walsh added: "It was like something from Abba the musical, all those guys had their tops off... I’m just glad you kept yours on!"

And Tulisa complained: "The staging was creepy, I didn’t understand why you were surrounded by people in their swimwear, I didn’t get it."

Meanwhile, former X Factor 2012 finalists Ella Henderson and Lucy Spraggan have also seemingly been taking some swipes at Chris

Lucy, who was forced to quit the show due to illness earlier this month, took a rather unsubtle dig at the singer 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, who was eliminated ahead of Chris last weekend.

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