A former colleague of Christopher's has done in interview with The Sunday Mirror in which she accuses him of screaming and shouting before 'grabbing her throat'.

"We got into a row and everything came spilling out," she said.

"I gave him a few home truths about what the other singers and dancers ­really thought of him. I told him that no-one liked him."

"Suddenly he flipped. His face totally changed. It was like he was someone else. His eyes started to burn red and he began shouting."

We have to say, so far this doesn't exactly sound like the Chris we have interviewed on a number of occasions.

However, the woman continues, saying that Chris 'grabbed her round the throat' while she screamed.

"He lunged towards me and grabbed me around the throat. I screamed and tried to get him off."

"Somehow I managed to get loose and ran out of the cabin, crying. I cried for hours that night."

We actually can't believe these claims, to us they seem, yet again, just too far fetched, but we suppose we should leave you to make your own minds up.

Last night a spokesman for Maloney said: "Chris ­denies the allegations."
