X Factor contestants are rallying together calling for Kye Sones to be part of the forthcoming tour while bosses are still deciding whether Christopher is allowed to take part after his outburst on Sunday.

So the word is that Kye could end up taking Christopher's place.

Currently, the tour boasts the top seven acts - so not Kye who lost his place on the show in Week Five.

However, winner James Arthur, Union J, Rylan Clark and Ella Henderson have all posted Twitter messages calling for Kye to be involved.

Bosses are due to meet today to talk through whether Christopher should be allowed on the tour after his behaviour at the show's final on Sunday.

Maloney is reported to have turned up to rehearsals still drunk before shouting at producers after being given just one line in the group song.

Carolynne Poole also reckons that she heard the Scouse singer call her a 'c***'.

Christopher, however, is saying he is suffering a chest infection and that is why he wasn't at the final.

We tried to find out from James Arthur what really happened when we interviewed him yesterday however, he told us he 'doesn't get into all that'.

A source told The Sun: "The other contestants have made no bones about the fact Kye was one of their best friends on the show and they would love him to tour."

"Nobody got on with Chris and after his outburst against Carolynne on Sunday, everyone is furious with him."

"They can't bear the thought of having to tour with Chris while Kye misses out."

However, before we all forget, Chris did come third on the show and surely that would mean he would be missed by fans on the tour?
