'X Factor': Christopher Maloney performed in spite of illness?

By
Christopher Maloney was suffering from a virus when he performed in this week's X Factor semi-finals, it has been claimed.

Maloney was reportedly so ill that he was advised by doctors not to take the stage, but persevered to make next weekend's X Factor final in spite of a vomiting bug.

"Chris was very ill, but is a real trouper and went ahead," a source told The Mirror. "He didn't want anything to get in the way of making the final.

"The doctor ruled out food poisoning - it might be the winter vomiting bug. He was in a really bad way."


Maloney, who is mentored by Gary Barlow, will compete with fellow soloists James Arthur and Jahmene Douglas - who are mentored by Nicole Scherzinger - next weekend.

Both Barlow and Scherzinger will sing with their respective acts during the final, it has been confirmed.

The X Factor finals take place next Saturday and Sunday (December 8 and 9) at Manchester Central and will be broadcast live on ITV1.
