Celebrity Big Brother contestant Christopher Maloney has been left red-faced after accidentally starting a fire in a holiday chalet - then fleeing in his pyjamas.

Chris, who found fame in the 2012 series of The X Factor, is currently touring Pontins holiday camps and had the mishap in Sussex while whipping up some bacon and eggs.

Not only did he have to abandon the scene, his fellow campers next door were also evacuated. Oops!

Speaking to the Liverpool Echo, Chris admitted: "I only popped out the room for a minute but when I came back out there was smoke everywhere and the cooker even caught fire.

"The chalet next door had to evacuate and I was absolutely ashamed, it was so embarrassing. I was still in my pyjamas.

"People were pointing and saying, 'there's that lad from The X Factor' and I was just so embarrassed."

Earlier this year, Chris appeared alongside the likes of Gemma Collins and Danniella Westbrook in Celebrity Big Brother.

It was the series which brought Stephanie Davis and Jeremy McConnell together, although we all know how that has ended...

Christopher, however, has remained in touch with Stephanie and he been supporting her both post Jeremy break-up and during her pregnancy.
