The show's executive producer is said to be looking into bringing in a new feature which has been used on the US version of the programme, in which the weekly phone votes are revealed to the viewers and the acts.
Usually, these results are not revealed to the public until the end of the series. The move would allow viewers to see which acts are most popular, and which are closest to being voted out of the competition.
Digital Spy has previously debated whether the move would be a good idea. It would in theory avoid popular acts being eliminated early due to viewers not voting out of the presumption that they are safe.
"If the viewers knew popular acts like Ella and James Arthur were pulling in low numbers of votes, it would encourage them to pick up the phone," an insider told The Sun.
"Revealing the voting numbers each week has really brought a new dynamic to the US show. Simon is looking to introduce it in the UK next year as part of a major shake-up."
