Weekly X Factor voting results to be released?

Most Popular

The sing off between James Arthur and Ella Henderson on last week's X Factor seems to have opened up a whole can of hoo-hah, particularly as they were both thought to be favourites.

But with that in mind, Simon Cowell and his big wig producers are reportedly considering revealing the phone votes every week in order to show viewers how their favourites are doing.

Simon Cowell planning to reveal weekly X Factor results after Ella Henderson and James Arthur hoo-hah?

As well as encouraging people to vote, it is thought that it would help viewers to see when their favourite acts are heading for the danger zone.

"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," a show insider apparently 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."
