X Factor: Christopher Maloney on tour line up annoys finalists!

Chris Maloney (X Factor 2012)

Christopher Maloney's spot on the X Factor tour is causing tension between the contestants.

It was cofirmed yesterday after much speculation that Chris would be taking part in the live concert tour next year.

It's despite pleas from the other contestants to get Kye Sones on the line up instead.

A source told The Sun newspaper at the weekend: “Everyone is completely fed up of his behaviour.

“He was abusive to the production team and other contestants.”

X Factor winner James Arthur tweeted this week: “#getkyeonthexfactortour” while Rylan Clark added: “#getkyonthexfactortour Bring my boy @Kyesones1 back!”

Ella Henderson also got on board with the campaign, tweeting: ” @Kyesones1 #getkyeonthexfactortour Xxx want u there big bro!! ”

And Union J added: “#getkyeonthexfactortour wuld love @kyestones to be there. Spread the word peeps much love x”

According to the Daily Mirror, Chris begged bosses to keep him on the bill after finishing in third place at the weekend.

A source told the paper however that the other acts aren't too happy.

The insider claimed: “There is unhappiness over this decision to let him back.

"He wasn’t universally liked whatsoever.”

The tabloid suggests that Chris may have to get his "own dressing room and ­separate rehearsal times" in order to avoid mixing with the other acts.

The live tour returns in 2013 with dates in January and February at Arenas up and down the country, including London’s O2, Manchester’s MEN and Wembley Arena in London.

Ella Henderson, Union J, District3, Christopher Maloney, Jahmene Douglas, Rylan Clark and James Arthur will all be taking part next year.
