X Factor 2012 results: Christopher Maloney to snub final after row with producers

Chris Maloney (X Factor 2012)

Where is Christopher Maloney? Chris is set to snub tonight's X Factor 2012 final results after reportedly rowing with producers.

Last night we saw Christopher Maloney finishing in third place on the first X Factor final results of the weekend, leaving James Arthur and Jahmene Douglas to go head to head on tonight's final.

But Chris apparently got into a furious row with producers after the show, and has now quit the series.

Of course, we're not too sure how he can quit having been eliminated, but that's reality telly for you.

Insiders claim that Chris turned up rather drunk for tonight's rehearsals, and clashed with the other finalists backstage, including arguing with Carolynne Poole.

The Liverpudlian singer apparently stormed off stage when rehearsing for tonight's group performance, annoyed that he only had a single line to sing.

"Everyone is completely fed up of his behaviour" a source said. "He was abusive to the production team and other contestants. He said he was leaving and didn't want to perform in the final tonight."

It all means that Chris won't feature in tonight's final, which will see James and Jahmene competing to win the show, while the remaining live show finalists will be returning for another group number.

A spokesperson for The X Factor said: "Chris decided he longer wanted to be part of the X Factor Final and has gone back to Liverpool."
