Following Christopher Maloney's recent 'foul-mouthed rant' it's now been revealed that X Factor stars want bosses to add former contestant Kye Sones to the show's tour instead of the cheesy crooner, as the scouser's place looks increasingly shaky.
The X Factor 2012 stars are apparently piling the pressue on to the organisers to let Kye, who was booted out in the fifth week, to join the line up for next year's arena dates, according to The Sun.
And the bunch have wasted no time in taking to social networking site Twitter to post messages calling for their pal to be involved.
Messages so far have been posted by the likes of James Arthur, Union J, Rylan Clark and Ella Henderson who will all be joining Jahmene Douglas and District 3 to perform in front of thousands on the string of gigs next year.
The bosses are reportedly due to meet today (December 12) to consider Maloney's future, after his foul-mouthed rant during the final at the weekend.
Chris, who was the last over 28's contestant standing in Gary Barlow's category, clashed with backroom staff at Sunday's final, and had to be pulled away from fellow reject Carolynne Poole after allegedly calling her a ''c***.''
The show's bosses fear that Chris, 34, could cause headaches with his diva-like behaviour if he goes on tour – and is now allegedly facing a £100,000 fine!
One of Cowell's aides said: ''We need to let the dust settle.''
