Former X Factor finalist Christopher Maloney appeared to launch into a Twitter rant last night as James Arthur was crowned winner of the show.
Following is exit from the show on Saturday when he came in at third place, reports started to suggest that Chris wouldn't be performing with the rest of this year's finalists on Sunday night. The reports were later confirmed when a rep told us:
"Chris decided he no longer wanted to be part of The X Factor Final and has gone back to Liverpool."
Appearing to hit out at the claims in a series of angry tweets, Christopher told his fans that the reason why he couldn't perform was because he had a "sore throat".
