Rak-Su soared to victory on The X Factor on Sunday night and it looks like none of the other acts were ever in the running.

They beat Grace Davies to become the first boyband to triumph on the ITV show and the voting figures reveal they were consistent leaders throughout the series.

ITV's official stats show that they got 51.7 per cent of the vote in Sunday's final and were never lower than second in any vote over the course of the show.

This year two categories (Groups and Overs) performed every Saturday and the remaining two (Boys and Girls) performed every Sunday.

Rak Su were ahead on their night for every week except week three when Kevin Davey White, who ultimately made it to third place, was ahead by 0.1 per cent.

On week five all acts performed on both nights and they still topped the vote.

Every week also saw a 'prize fight' vote which pitted the top two acts against each other to win a prize and they won just one in week four although they were up for three.
