X Factor winners Little Mix let rip at phoney Christopher Maloney
LET’S be honest – only two X Factor singers this year have even half a chance of pop success.

ELLA HENDERSON and JAMES ARTHUR both combine some reasonable vocal talent with enough originality to have a sniff of a record deal.

Don’t give me any of your JAHMENE jive. The boy is afraid of his own shadow — and that brings back images of LEON JACKSON.

As for CHRISTOPHER MALONEY even a girlband like LITTLE MIX can see he’s not cut out for anything more than the club circuit.

JESY from the group, who won last year’s X Factor, even offered her sympathies to his mentor, GARY BARLOW.

She said: “Poor Gary, clinging on to Ma-phoney. We’re not fans.

“I don’t really get it and I don’t know who is going to buy his music. I guess ‘each to their own’. But I can’t see that he’s going to become a pop star.”

And her bandmate JADE vowed: “I’ll eat my hat if he goes the whole way.”

Masterplan would see Girls aloud star team up with Nicole Scherzinger for the next series

SIMON Cowell is working on a master plan to bring Cheryl Cole back to X Factor – and it could spell curtains for Tulisa.

“Simon thinks people would watch it in their droves so he is currently lining up an audacious bid to offer her.

“He knows Cheryl won’t be cheap but more importantly he knows he needs to offer her the right role.

“She has resisted going back despite him offering Cheryl the UK X Factor after the US situation went wrong.
