X Factor's Christopher Maloney has definitely caused quite a stir in show and it doesn't look like the drama is going to be stopping anytime soon, as the Scouser has now apparently been involved in a 'backstage bust up' with fellow contestant Rylan Clark. Uh-ohh!
According to The Mirror, the hopefuls have reportedly gone head to head a number of times in recent weeks but their differences have now reached a whole new level it seems, with the pair now 'refusing to even be in the same room as one another'.
An insider revealed: "Christopher has been really bugging Rylan backstage - and Chris isn't everyone else's favourite contestant either."
They continued, "The two of them have really clashed over the past week, culminating in a massive fight."
And understandably, the fallout has proven to be quite difficult for everyone who works on the ITV show.
The source continued: "They don't want to be anywhere near each other and are refusing to share the contestants' communal dressing room."
Adding, "Chris can come across as arrogant and some of the other contestants think he's fake and puts an act on for the cameras."
And that's not all! Apparently Chris has even turned on his mentor Gary Barlow as well.
The source added to the paper: "Gary’s currently working on his solo tour while he performs his duties as an X Factor judge and mentor."
"But Chris has been saying he’s annoyed that he’s had no contact with Gary all week."
Adding, "He’s been feeling neglected and doesn’t want this to have a negative impact on his performance on this week’s show."
What do we think readers? Is Chris safe this week after his diva antics?
