XFactor 2012: Union J aren't too happy about Christopher Maloney making the final

Union J (X Factor 2012)

X Factor rejects Union J haven't been all that pleasant about Christopher Maloney this week.

The boys were kicked out last weekend after being in the bottom two for the fourth time.

Although Sunday night the judges didn't get the chance to save the boys once again, with the group coming bottom in the phone vote and being booted out just before the final.

Union J confessed they're shocked that Christopher Maloney has beaten them - and the likes of Ella Henderson - into the final.

Jaymi told Yahoo! OMG this week: "When we first started this we thought it would be Ella Henderson, Jahmene Douglas and James Arthur"

He added: "Ella is more talented than Christopher, she was robbed massively. But he needs the show, he won't have as much opportunity outside the show"

"Chris isn't as current, but he isn't as bad as the press make out"

That's sort of a compliment, we guess.

The group added that they felt it was almost certain Chris would now win the show.

"Chris is going to win, Chris will win the x factor," they declared defiantly. "If he does win, it's not bad, he's got a massive fanbase."

Meanwhile, the foursome confessed that living up to Louis Walsh's claims of becoming the next big boyband could be an uphill struggle.

Josh said: "It's going to be a big ask because [One Direction] are humungous and I don't think people can believe how big they are!"
