XFactor: Christopher Maloney hits out at James Arthur's win!

X Factor 2012 final Gary Chris

X Factor's Christopher Maloney has said he's not happy James Arthur won the show.

The singer finished third in last year's final, but claimed he was expecting to win.

"I thought the final two would be me and Jahmene, I had been topping the public vote every week," Chris said.

In the end James triumphed over both Chris and Jahmene, and Chris wasn't too happy.

He said: "To me Jahmene was the real winner. He overcame a lot and worked really hard."

But Chris added: "Good luck to James."

That's sure to make it a tad awkward on the live tour this week!

Although Chris insisted: “I’ve been in touch with most of them since.

“All the stories about separate dressing rooms and stuff are just rubbish. I cant wait for it [the tour].”

Meanwhile, Chris claimed that he has had a number of record label deals in the pipeline.

"The offers that have come in have been unbelievable," he said. My management are working through them but nothing's yet confirmed. Watch this space!"
