Christopher Maloney – Wildcard

He was the lad from Liverpool who was shaking so badly that he almost couldn’t audition. He then went on to finish third in X Factor 2012. During his time on the show, he was trolled so badly that he had a breakdown, which then led him to the plastic surgeon’s table on more than one occasion. He has since confronted one of his trolls for a Channel 5 documentary and spent time in the Celebrity Big Brother house in 2016. He continues to tour, is a regular on the panto circuit, and now runs his own academy for aspiring talent.

Bullying, cruise ships, X Factor, plastic surgery, Celebrity Big Brother, pantomime, near-death spider bites and car crashes, Chris has seen it all, and survived…just!

This is his story in his own words…so far.
