Girl power dominated X Factor votes statistics show

Anthony Barnes and Beverley Rouse

GIRLS came out on top every week during the latest series of The X Factor, with female acts dominating every heat, new figures show.

Voting patterns from throughout the series have been released by programme bosses which show the boys did not get a look-in from the start.

And the eventual winners Little Mix did not head the list until the seventh week of the 10 live heats.

Last year the victor Matt Cardle topped the voting every week. But this year, three acts took turns to grab the public's affections and head the field.

Irish teenager Janet Devlin led the viewers' voting for four straight weeks and only lost her position when Amelia Lily was voted back into the competition. From then on it was Amelia or Little Mix who went on to lead each week. And girl group Little Mix were then clear favourites from the semi-final onwards.

The votes went as follows:

:: Final results:

Little Mix: 48.3pc

Marcus Collins: 42.8pc

Amelia Lily (carried over from before the freeze): 8.9pc
