Christopher Maloney quits Twitter after death threats

The 34-year-old updated his fans in one last tweet that he won’t be letting the online hate campaign, which has included tweets urging him to commit suicide, derail his strong run in the competition.

Before signing out, he tweeted: ‘Ello guys, taking a break from twitter for a bit, need to concentrate on my songs for this week. Ope u understand, thanks 4 ur support. Xx.’

Earlier the defiant Liverpudlian insisted his haters would not ruin his moment in showbiz’s sun.
He said: ‘All the negativity and crap I’ve been getting – people trying to bring me down and maybe force me to quit – it’s not going to happen. No way. I’ve worked too hard just for somebody to take it away from me.’
