Uh-oh - there's not much love for Christopher Maloney from his fellow contestant

Christopher Maloney has had a rocky ride on The X Factor, getting booed by the studio audience and even receiving vile death threats that have led him to ‘take a break’ from Twitter.

And it seems even his fellow contestant James Arthur, 24, isn’t a fan.

When Now caught up with James, he said of Chris, 34: ‘Like Tulisa said the other night, I personally wouldn’t buy his album.

‘I was much more of a fan of Ella Henderson, so I would’ve preferred to have seen Chris go that week.

‘But that wasn’t the case – it was me versus Ella.’

He even added: ‘If Chris was to win, as a punter I’d lose a little bit of faith in what the show is looking for.’

Ouch!
