Celebrity Big Brother's Christopher Maloney is the latest star to sign up for the TV series In Therapy, according to reports.

Christopher, who found fame during the 2012 series of The X Factor, will reportedly be opening up on the Channel 5 programme about his experience with online trolling and why he spent a whopping £70,000 on cosmetic surgery.

A source told The Sun: "Chris agreed to go for the sessions for In Therapy because his whole world has changed since becoming famous on The X Factor. He's been to hell and back and he sees it as being as part of his road to recovery."

In August, Christopher tracked down and confronted a man called Gary who had trolled him during the Channel 5 documentary, Celeb Trolls: We're Coming To Get You.

Hosted by Frankie Bridge, the pair traced the bully with the help of a private investigator before fronting him up in a phone call.

At the time, Christopher told Frankie about how the abuse had affected him. He explained: "It had a really bad affect on me. I hated myself. I had so much self-loathing I just hated everything about me, and the breakdown happened."

When confronted, Gary agreed to delete a death threat tweet and insisted to Chris: "It was a spur-of-the-moment thing and I didn't actually think you'd read it, to be honest."

A transmission date for In Therapy is yet to be confirmed.
