The Sunday Mirror has printed details of what it claims are voting patterns from the six weeks of the contest that we have seen so far.
Each week, viewers are told which two acts received the least votes from the public, but host Kate Thornton does not reveal who is the most popular.
Last night, Andy Abraham apparently topped the poll for the third time in six weeks, while the Conway Sisters received the lowest number of votes, but were saved by the judges. Shayne Ward was in second place, followed by Chico Slimani and Journey South.
Last week, Nicholas was first, Journey South were second and Brenda was third. Although Maria Lawson and the Conways were in the bottom two, Maria had received double the amount of votes cast for the Irish group.
If the figures are correct, they show that Shayne, who is favourite to win the show, has only been the most popular contestant once – in week two.
The newspaper claims that producers have now launched an investigation into how the details have been leaked.
