Maloney will join X Factor tour

Christopher Maloney will join his fellow X Factor finalists on tour

Controversial X Factor finalist Christopher Maloney will appear on the show's live tour despite reports that he had fallen out with bosses and some of his fellow contestants.

The Liverpudlian singer, who split public opinion with his emotional on-stage displays, will join other acts including fellow finalists Jahmene Douglas and James Arthur in a series of concerts.

Christopher, who came third in this year's series, took to Twitter earlier this week to ask people to stop what he described as "online abuse".

He said: "All I done was follow my dream, coming 3rd was an achievement. feel gutted I didn't win an im unwell right now, plz xx."

His future on the tour was put in doubt after reports of rows behind the scenes at the X Factor final in Manchester but a spokeswoman for the tour confirmed Christopher would take part.

Arthur, this year's winner, is set to top the singles chart this weekend after shifting more than 255,000 copies of his song, Impossible.

The Official Charts Company said the track had become the fastest-selling single of the year so far.

You're willing to rough it for an adventure, but you do want to get good value for your money. Doing some research into the best places to stay and eat will pay off handsomely. Take along a friend who is free spirited and eager to explore unfamiliar vistas. The two of you will make great travelling companions.More
