XFactor 2012: Christopher Maloney ain't no diva (says his nan)

Chris Maloney (X Factor 2012)

Christopher Maloney's famous nan has jumped to the defence of the X Factor finalist, insisting he ain't no diva!

Admittedly, she didn't put it quite like that, but she was pretty annoyed with the claims.

Chris' nan Pat said: "He is far from a diva. The lad shops in Poundland for goodness' sake! If he was home now he'd be going to work then coming home and cooking for himself. Chris cooks from scratch - no ready meals for him.

"He runs around for me all the time. If he can do anything to help anyone in the family, he will. A kind word goes a long way and a smile costs nothing. That's what I say - and I told Louis that too!

Pat added: ""Everywhere I go people stop me and tell me how well he is doing in the competition, the public love Chris.

The overs never do well, but Christopher's voice is amazing. He deserves this."

Meanwhile Chris' nan has found herself becoming a bit of a celebrity in her own right.

She revealed: "Everyone always asks me for photos. In London Harry Derbidge from TOWIE asked for picture and said Essex had a nanny Pat, so he needed to meet Liverpool's one."

The X Factor 2012 continues this weekend with the live final in Manchester.

Chris Maloney, Jahmene Douglas and James Arthur will be battling it out to be crowned winner, while there will be performances from One Direction, Kelly Clarkson, Rita Ora, Kylie Minogue, Rhianna and Emeli Sande.
