According to The Sun, more than 30,000 votes for the renowned producer were not counted, and saw him voted off the show instead of Myleene Klass.
In one of the leaked emails, the writer claims: "David Gest shouldn't have been voted out last night. It should have been Myleene Klass!
"We had over 30,000 votes come in late to save David, but we have to give the figs to the production team in Aus, so they could announce the live results. They were having a fit and asked us to double check the figs, I didn't realise the texts were still coming through."
ITV has admitted that there was a computer failure on the night of the poll, but claims that all the votes were eventually counted.
They said in a statement: "This accusation is completely wrong. On the night of David Gest's eviction, all votes were counted and verified."
