We must admit to having a bit of an 'awww' moment when we saw X Factor hopeful Christopher Maloney shaking like a leaf during his first audition.

And eliminated contestant Carolynne Poole admitted that he is actually very confident, saying: “I didn’t see he was shy. The reason people say things about him is he is a confident, bold person so they are surprised when they see the nerves.”

And on Sunday's Xtra Factor, judge Louis Walsh suggested Christopher wasn't exactly the shy and retiring type when he was asked who caused the most trouble backstage by hosts Caroline Flack and Olly Murs.

“Rylan is not a diva at all backstage. I think Chris from Liverpool is a bit of a diva. That's what I'm hearing “

Meanwhile, Christopher - who has previously worked as a cruise ship entertainer - has said that his mentor, Gary Barlow is helping him build his confidence up.

"He wasn’t worried about my nerves because he’s helping me build my confidence back up.
