X Factor 2012 final: Gary Barlow's mum is Chris Maloney's biggest fan!

X Factor 2012 final Gary Chris

Who's voting for Christopher Maloney on The X Factor? Turns out it's Gary Barlow's mum!

The Take That star has revealed that his mum is one of Chris' biggest fans and has been voting for the Liverpool singer every week so far.

Although she may just been doing it support Gary!

"My mum and all her neighbours are voting for Chris," Gary said.

Gary also confessed that besides his own mum, " I don’t know who is voting for Chris. I’m just really happy that he has the public’s support."

Reflecting back on the series, Gary told the official ITV1 X Factor website this week: "The X Factor is much more fun this year. There has been shedloads of drama! Last year was a learning curve for me.

"This year, I’ve been less nervous and I’m taking things in my stride. I toured during last year’s show. In hindsight, I took on too much and was knackered the whole time."

And Gary said he was happy that Rylan had moved from singing into telly!

He remarked: "I’m delighted to hear that he’s got some TV work. He’s a natural entertainer and I see him being really successful as a presenter. I was fond of Rylan, he’s a really genuine guy."

The X Factor 2012 continues tonight with the live final in Manchester from 8PM on ITV1.

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.
