'The X Factor' might be over for another year but the backstage rumour mill is still in overdrive, particularly where Christopher Maloney is concerned.

Chris - who came third in this weekend's final - is at the centre of yet more controv after allegedly lashing out at show producers and contestant Carolynne Poole at the weekend.

The shaky scouser claims he didn't take part in Sunday's live final after being signed off with a sore throat but insiders claim show bosses refused to let him perform after he reportedly turned up late and hungover to rehearsals on Sunday.

According to the Mirror, after being voted off on Saturday night, Chris hit the town with a group of mates until 4am on Sunday morning and rocked up to rehearsals 'worse for wear'. When show producers told him he was too late to be involved he "stormed off again and left in a strop."

An 'X Factor' spokesman later told the paper: “Chris decided he no longer wanted to be part of The X Factor Final and has gone back to Liverpool.”

Carolynne Poole - who was voted off in the first live show - then sent a tweet, which appeared to be aimed at Chris, saying: "X Factor can also create monsters it would seem!"

Cue an angry response from Chris and a mini-Twitter meltdown...

Christopher isn't the only 'X Factor' finalist who seems to be upsetting people today. James Arthur's been busy too...
