In the space of this week, X Factor finalist Rylan Clark and allegedly judge Tulisa have been told off for their behaviour and now Chris Maloney has joined the list following the reports that the finalist has been issued a warning for being "rude".
According to The Sun, the finalist, who was bought back into the competition after winning his place in final as Gary's wildcard act, had a chat with the show's bosses after they saw him being rude to a member of staff.
An insider claimed: "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."
As the live shows kicked off earlier this month, Chris became the topic of discussion when Tulisa Contostavlos, Nicole Scherzinger and Louis Walsh were asked who they thought the diva was among the finalists.
Talking about Chris on the Xtra Factor, Louis said: "No Rylan is not a diva at all backstage”, before adding: “I think Chris from Liverpool is a bit of a diva. That's what I'm hearing “
