Christopher Maloney has been warned about being rude to X Factor staff, after a display of rude behaviour.

He reportedly snapped at a researcher on the show, leading top show executives to tell him to watch his step.

A source on the show told The Sun: "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."

Fellow contestants on the show have also said to be less than thrilled with the singer, believing that Maloney's constant display of nerves are over the top and fake.


Christopher Maloney: making no friends on the X Factor show.

Maloney is just the latest contestant to cause trouble, following this week's news that Rylan and Lucy Spraggan were kicked out of The Corinthian hotel after their drunken and rowdy behaviour.

The show executives were said to be 'furious' about the pair's antics and have moved them to a budget hotel for the rest of the week.

And it's not just the contestants - judge and mentor Tulisa has also angered the long-suffering staff with reports of smoking in her dressing room and filling with her 'chavvy pals'.

"She's smoking in her dressing room in the breaks and it's full of her chavvy pals drinking from the minibar," says a source to The Sun newspaper."When they won't leave it means security staff are stuck there waiting to lock up."

Photos: X Factor fix? We count down this year's top X Factor rumours

  • Was the elimination of Carolynne a fix? The choice was between character Rylan or Carolynne, one of the strongest (albeit boring) singers in the competition. Carolynne went home as she had not received as many votes as Rylan. Many have speculated that it was a fix, with a producer seen whispering to Louis Walsh - who was responsible for the 'deadlock' that saw Carolynne leave the show.

  • Favourite to win, Ella Henderson, and Union J's newest member George Shelley are apparently having an X Factor romance - or so claims The Sun. The teenagers have apparently been flirting outrageously for weeks, and even got dared to 'snog' each other by the other contestants.

  • Simon Cowell has apparently had enough of the current judges line-up that includes Gary Barlow, Tulisa, Nicole and Louis. It is rumoured that if the X Factor is to continue next year, that he wants Cheryl Cole and Will I Am on the panel instead . An insider from the show told the Mirror, "We need to do something dramatic and this would be a coup, it would give us the best judging line-up in X Factor history."

  • Judge Tulisa has repeatedly been spotted in 'similar' oufits and with 'similar' makeup to contestant Rylan, so apparently he is now her style guru reports most of the tabloid press.

  • Barlow has vowed to 'get Simon back' when he releases his autobiography, reports The Sun. "Wait until my book comes out! It will be bloody beautiful. I'll get the lot of them." This comes after Gary was blasted in Tom Bower's book, in which Simon had said that Gary was "too scripted" and should be sacked.

  • Nicole Scherzinger admitted she didn't want to move to England in an astonishing rant moments before boarding the plane to London, reports The Sun. The judge was overheard shouting down the phone at New York's JFK airport a week before she came to London. You know where the door is love...

  • One Direction are apparently 'desperate' to come and perform on the X Factor stage once more, having already performed on the first of the live finals on 6 October 2012.

  • Neyo has apparently stuck up for Rylan, claiming that, "Rylan will sell records" and that he may even write a song for him in the future. This has a lot more to do with the fact that Neyo and Rylan's mentor Nicole are friends, than anything to do with Rylan.

  • Shy Kye Sones is said to be happy for Rylan Clark to have the biggest budget spent on his set and is happy to continue with his low key performances. Rylan performed 'Gold' by Spandau ballet, with an ornate gold, Egyptian theme.

  • Professor Green was outraged when he was repeatedly tweeted that he looked like X Factor contestant James Arthur. He took to Twitter to express his annoyance, "You can all f*** off and die slowly the yout does not look like me." He does look like you though Pro Green, sorry...
