The singer hasn't found reaching The X Factor final easy
The Scouse singer, 34, says he’s been working on his act since being labelled ‘fake’ and ‘cheesy’ but is adamant that he won’t give up on his dream.
‘I’m proud of the way I’ve handled the stick. This is all I ever wanted to do and regardless of what criticism I get I’ve always come back fighting the next week,’ Christopher tells the Daily Mirror.
‘I’ve tried to take on board what everyone has said, even if it is tough. I do take it all to heart.’
He performed a gig to 1,500 people at the Liverpool Empire – where the average age of his audience was reportedly 82.
‘He’s a favourite of the older generation, but we were amazed by how many pensioners wanted to support him at his gig,’ a source tells The Sun.
‘It seems a lot of them are also spending their pension voting for him – and he could win the show off the back of them.’
