X Factor's Chris Maloney 'Rude To Researcher'
Contestant reportedly told off after outburst at member of staff...
The X Factor hopeful Christopher Maloney is reported to have been given a ticking off by producers after shouting at a researcher on the show.
The Sun reports that the 34-year-old contestant was taken aside and given a talking to after "barking" at a member of staff.
A source told the paper: "Christopher is not making many friends.
"He was out of line with a researcher and he's been warned by top brass that he needs to wind his neck in or he'll get the shove."
The Liverpudlian has previously been accused of faking his nerves on the show.
One source told The Sun: "Many of us who have worked with him cannot believe some of the rubbish he is coming out with… He was arrogant and cocky. I never saw a trace of nerves."
He is the favourite with bookies to get the boot this weekend, with odds of 3-1 on offer.
We told you earlier today how his rival Kye Sones had reportedly hooked up with Emily Atack.
