XFactor 2012: Christopher Maloney hits back at Tulisa!

Chris Maloney (X Factor 2012)

XFactor 2012 hopeful Christopher Maloney has hit back at Tulisa after her constant negative feedback.

Former N-Dubz singer hasn't hidden her dislike for Chris, and the weekend saw more bad comments from her towards the Liverpudlian singer.

Speaking yesterday, Tulisa said: "I’d rather not comment on Chris. The more I criticise him, the more people seem to keep him in. It would be great to see James or Jahmene win this. I’m rooting for them."

However, Chris hit back today: "It’s always a mixture of good and bad [from the judges]. I try to use criticism I receive constructively.

"Tulisa’s comments hurt me the most. She’s not interested in me at all. I think now that Ella has gone that it may be a case of sour grapes."

Chris was more positive about Nicole Scherzinger and his mentor Gary Barlow.

he said: "I love Nicole, she’s always very positive with her feedback. Gary has been a huge support. He’s not just a mentor, he’s a friend."

Speaking to the official ITV1 X Factor website, Chris admitted he felt his performances at the weekend went well, despite the judges' comments.

He explained: "It was dead good, I really enjoyed myself. The Judges often criticise my performances for being dated. It felt good to do something slightly out of my comfort zone.

"It was nice to get the Rylan treatment in terms of the set and budget. I was delighted with the choreography Brian came up with. It was also great to ditch my usual suit for a leather jacket."

The X Factor 2012 continues this weekend on ITV1 and ITV1HD with the final four acts singing songs that they hope will get them into the final.

On Sunday's results show, one more act get the axe and there will be performances from Pink and Tulisa.
