X Factor Bosses Angry As Chris Maloney Goes AWOL
Singer reported to have walked out of hotel and missed Robbie Williams session...
Bosses at The X Factor are reportedly furious with Christopher Maloney after the contestant went AWOL when he was supposed to be filming with pop star Robbie Williams last week.
The Sun claims that the 34-year-old singer "stormed" out of the hotel where the hopefuls are being put up in London on Thursday and hopped on a train to Liverpool to visit his grandmother.
A source told the paper: "Bosses were furious. Robbie’s masterclass was a big deal and to miss it is unforgivable. Now we have to explain why he isn’t there on the show this weekend.”
And the paper added: "Frantic bosses finally tracked him down that evening. It is thought he was feeling the pressure over criticism he received on last weekend's show and wanted to see his grandmother.
Maloney was this week reported to have been targeted for the boot by show chief Simon Cowell.
