THREE of the X Factor judges have spoken of how they believe Liverpool native Christopher Maloney is ‘a diva’ backstage.

The singer, who won a place in the live shows thanks to a wildcard vote, became known for his extreme nerves during the audition process.

However Louis Walsh has cast doubts over whether Maloney’s nerves are just an act for the camera.

After Maloney performed on Saturday’s show Louis asked him about his tan, wondering if he’d got it on a cruise ship – this was in reference to the fact Maloney had performed for years on a cruise ship despite insisting he had no confidence to sing.

On the Xtra Factor after Sunday’s results show Walsh also insisted he had heard from that Maloney was acting like a diva backstage – with both Tulisa and Nicole agreeing they had heard the same thing.

However when asked about their comments by Caroline Flack, Maloney denied he has been acting like a diva backstage - adding that he believed it was a tactic by Louis to cost him votes.
