Christopher tops X Factor vote

  • Christopher Maloney received the highest number of public votes on The X Factor 7 weeks in a row.

    The controversial contestant may not have been popular with the judges but he had certainly won the public over with his ‘cheesy’ performances.

    His popularity began to slide in the 8th week of the show when eventual winner James Arthur took over the top spot.

    Runner-up Jahmene Douglas was consistently popular, being voted into second place behind Christopher for most of the competition.
