Eoghan Quigg won the majority of votes in this year’s X Factor according to statistics revealed by ITV.

The Irish 16-year-old, who came third in the final, won six out of the ten weekly live shows and gained the most votes overall.

Alexandra Burke, who was crowned the winner with 58 per cent of the vote, had only won one show in the series before the final.

The voting results also reveal the truth behind early favourite Laura White’s shock departure in week five.

Spanish singer Ruth Lorenzo was actually bottom in the public vote with 6.94 per cent compared to Laura’s 9.90 per cent but she was eliminated by the judges after a sing-off.

Boy band JLS were also late frontrunners to winning the show, gaining the most votes in week nine with over 35 per cent.

Total number of votes cast over the entire series: 16,469,064.
