Chris was on ITV’s This Morning, talking about why he had £60,000 of cosmetic surgery after internet trolls destroyed his confidence and mental wellbeing during his time on X Factor.

Christopher Maloney revealed he said no to X Factor talent scouts when they phoned him about new acts for this year’s series.
The former finalist exclusively told the ECHO that producers were keen for some of his fame academy students to appear on the show – and claims pupils that met their criteria would be fast-tracked to the TV auditions.
We are pleased to announce that the Mayor of Liverpool Joe Anderson has given us a cheque for £4000 from his Mayor’s fund, to help our academy pay for much needed PA equipment.
Mayor Anderson said:
I hope that this money will go some way to making it a better place for the children, coaches and families who attend the academy, you do fantastic work in helping the children of Merseyside.
Thank you Mr Anderson for your fabulous donation, from myself Christopher Maloney and all the children and coaches from the academy.
Congratulations to Christopher Maloney on his engagement to now finance Gary Doran.
Christopher (36) and Gary (32) met seven years ago last September and Christopher had recently hinted he was ready to take the next step.
On Saturday 24th January in a private Sinai Oasis in the Sharm El Sheikh desert, owned by Shiekh Hussian, whilst sitting down to a luxurious lunch Christopher nervously popped the question, which was happily answered with a yes!
So as not to give the game away Christopher paid for close friend and patron of his performing arts academy, Daniella Westbrook, to fly out and join them as an extra surprise for Gary; as well as to join in with the presumed celebrations.
The whole romantic plan was organised by Sinai Safari Adventures alongside Christopher’s management, Krystal Management.
The newly engaged couple are naturally delighted to share this news and couldn’t have wished to begin their engagement any other way, in the company of Daniella and Shiekh Hussian surrounded by the beautiful location.
Christopher has hinted it won’t be a long engagement and the couple will begin discussing dates once his UK tour is complete in April/May this year.
The opening of the academy was featured on Granada Reports.
