Louis Walsh and Christopher Maloney are set for a live-ish show down on The X Factor.

Christopher has revealed he's set to come face to face with Louis as part of a skit on The X Factor's new live spin-off show on ITV2.

It follows another row between the judge and former finalist after Christopher took aim at Louis' return to the panel this year.

Christopher told DigitalSpy this week: "I'll be going on the show in a couple of weeks. I'll be going on the main show and The Xtra Factor. I'll be having show time with Louis. We're going to have a meeting."

He went on: "Me and Louis have a love-hate thing and it all stems from The Xtra Factor in 2012, [when] a viewer called in and asked who's the biggest diva.

"Louis said, 'Chris', so I was fighting the whole diva tag the whole time. I said later, 'Why did you say it?' and he told me, 'You're popular with the public and you're the first person that popped into my head. It will get you in the papers,' and I said, 'Yeah, for all the wrong reasons!'"

The pair's latest feud started when Christopher took aim at Louis' return on this year's show, saying: "I'm looking forward to [The X Factor] but I'm a bit miffed that Louis has come back. He's a non-entity on the show but they've brought him back."

Rylan Clark-Neal decided to try and stir up a bit of trouble by repeating Christopher's comments to Louis on the Xtra Factor.

"I don't know who he is? Who is he?!" replied Louis initially.

After Rylan reminded Louis of just who Christopher was, the Irishman quipped: "Oh, the karaoke singer with all the make up!"

Christopher said today: "I'll stand by that - that he is a non-entity on the show, he doesn't bring much to it and he's very predictable with his comments."

The X Factor continues this Saturday and Sunday night on ITV while Xtra Factor airs on ITV2 straight after the main show.
