X Factor 2012: Christopher Maloney says Caroline Flack doesn’t like him & Louis Walsh has gone ‘below the belt’

Christopher Maloney has insisted that Louis Walsh has been a little unfair on him during this year’s X Factor series.

The Liverpudlian hopeful is the last remaining over in Gary Barlow’s category but has had quite the uphill struggle over the past five weeks.

Louis accused him of being a diva, Tulisa and Nicole Scherzinger agreed, MK1 said he kicks off a lot backstage and most recently, his former roommate Kye Sones says that he sets himself apart from his fellow contestants.

On top of all that the panel have repeatedly called him cheesy and dated and we can see why Chris is starting to struggle.

He admitted today that while he does take the judges feedback on board, he thinks Walsh has gone too far at times and explained:

“I appreciate the Judges’ feedback. I do take their advice on-board. Although, I think Louis’ comments have been below the belt at times.”

Maloney is particularly upset with the diva claims and has previously admitted that his problems started as soon as Lou Lou uttered those words on The Xtra Factor.

Speaking to ITV.com he added:

“I don’t get why he called me a ‘diva.’ I reckon he was lost for words when he was asked that question on Xtra Factor by a caller. He plucked my name from thin air!”

The former call centre worker defended himself, saying that he doesn’t have ‘airs and graces’ and he says the judges have got it all wrong.

Chris revealed:

“If I was a diva, I wouldn’t cook and clean for my Nan like I do. I don’t have any airs or graces. I don’t take a second of what’s happening to me for granted. I’m grateful for every second and opportunity that comes my way.”

But it’s not just Louis that the 34 year old has a problem with. He thinks that Xtra Factor presenter Caroline Flack has issues with him too and in a game of snog, marry, avoid he said:

“I’d snog Tulisa, marry Nicole and avoid Caroline Flack. I’d swerve Caroline as I don’t think she likes me very much. She takes the mickey out of me all the time on The Xtra Factor!”

What do you think X Factor fans? Does Chris have it right? Are Caroline and Louis being too hard on him?
