Christopher Maloney has reportedly been pulling in the highest amount of public votes it has been reported.
Gary Barlow has lost two contestants in as many weeks from his overs category, so he will be relieved if the reports are true, as it’s been claimed that the Liverpudlian hopeful has struck a chord with viewers and has got more of them to vote for him than any other contestant.
Chris of course mobilised his fanbase during the first week of the live rounds when he was voted back in as Barlow’s wildcard, above Amy Mottram, Times Red and Adam Burridge.
Now it seems he is winning more support than Rylan Clark, Kye Sones and District 3.
Bookies are tipping the 34 year old as the act most likely to be eliminated on Sunday but insiders say this is unlikely to be the case and one told The Daily Star:
“Liverpool has clearly come out in force to back their man because we’re not sure who else is.
“He’s not particularly liked backstage because he’s a diva and thinks he’s the star of the show.”
It was claimed by Louis Walsh and Tulisa last week that Chris has a reputation for his diva like behaviour backstage, and the source claimed that most viewers seem to believe the judges. However, they like him anyway. They added:
“Most people reckon his nerves are a complete act too because it’s funny how he’s shaking one minute and then suddenly he’s fine.”
Somehow though, the insider claims that producers are aware of the fact that Maloney is still proving to be the fan favourite of the series.
Chris is putting his all into his performance for this weekend’s show and has previously admitted that he can’t wait to perform in club classics week.
He’s busy rehearsing his dance routine today and tweeted:
“Hello everyone, ope ur ok, just doing some moves with brian, seriously running out of clothes! Grrrrr x x”
Maloney has also been trying to expand his online fanbase and added;
“Would make my day if you all could join my x factor facebook page. Its just been sorted with the x factor team xx”
