X Factor 2012 semi final results: Little Mix want Christopher Maloney out

Little Mix

Last year's X Factor champs have called on their fans to vote out Christopher Maloney on tonight's semi-final results show!

Four acts remain in the competition and tonight will see one sent home, just a week before the final.

There's no bottom two leaving it in the hands of the public alone to decide who stays and goes.

Little Mix's Jesy was pretty clear who she wanted out, tweeting this weekend: "Would love for the final to be James, jahmene and union j it's gonna be so close tonight who do we thinks gona go mixers? Jesy x"

Jesy's bandmate Leigh-Anne agreed, backing Jahmene Douglas in particular to go on and win.

She tweeted: "@JahmeneDouglas has to win! Fully backing you all the way! 🙂 x Leigh”

Also backing Jahmene to make the final next weekend is last year's fourth placed contestant Misha B.

She wrote online: “Vote Jahmene !!! #SpiritOfaFighter"

Jahmene himself was seemingly overwhelmed by the celebrity support, tweeting: "I can't believe it's the semi-finals !! Eeeek. Where did all that time go... #goodtimes"


Despite being the favourite to win the show, Jahmene last night said he feared being eliminated.

“I feel like I have done everything I can do, I don’t think I’m a dead certain to make the final, I’ve got a 25% chance just like everyone else,” Jahmene said.

He told Xtra Factor hosts Caroline Flack and Olly Murs: “It’s everything to everyone to get into the final, as cheesy as it sounds.”

The X Factor 2012 live shows tonight on ITV1 and ITV1HD with the semi-final results show.

There will be performances from Pink and Tulisa as well as the final elimination of the series.

There's no sing off on this evening's results, meaning act with the lowest votes will automatically get the axe.
