Strictly Come Dancing 2012: Denise Van Outen mocks X Factor’s Christopher Maloney!

Denise Van Outen has jumped on the Christopher Maloney bashing train it would seem.

At first we thought the Strictly Come Dancing contestant was being nice when she tweeted her followers to say that she liked the look of the 34 year old X Factor hopeful.

She wrote on her Twitter page:

“I think Christopher Maloney is FIT!”

Denise is a BIG X Factor fan and was very vocal about the show a few weeks ago when her favourite Ella Henderson was eliminated, so we weren’t surprised that she was watching the rival ITV show. We were surprised that she fancied Chris though, especially considering the hottie she gets to dance with on a daily basis. Have you seen James Jordan?

It all made sense just a few minutes later though and Denise followed up her comment with the tweet:

“I was joking about Christopher Maloney”


She also retweeted a spoof message which read:

“BREAKING: Police called to the home of Christopher Maloney’s nan as bailiffs demand payment for a £1.2 million phone bill #xfactor”

The only problem is that Chris saw the tweet and he replied to Denise this morning saying:

“why thank u lol xx 🙂 seen your last tweet tho!”

It seems the Liverpudlian is getting feisty!

Denise was a big ball of relief last night as she was saved once again by the voting British public. Despite a slight hiccup in her and James’ routine on Saturday, the pair avoided the bottom two and watched on as Nicky Byrne and Michael Vaughan were in the danceoff and poor old Michael went home.

She thanked her fans last night, writing:

“Thank you for voting for me and @The_JamesJordan. So excited to back next week on Strictly to dance again”

However she did get a jibe in at her professional partner adding:

“Let’s hope @The_JamesJordan doesn’t forget our dance halfway through it next week. Hee hee!!”

Denise is currently one of the bookies favourites to win Strictly this month, behind Louis Smith and Flavia Cacace. Do you think she can do it? What do you think of her comments about Christopher Maloney? Leave your comments below…
