X Factor: Janet Devlin Topped Public Vote The Most

The Irish singer led the pack over four weeks of the show...

The full voting details from this year's X Factor have been released - with Irish singer Janet Devlin winning the most public votes across the series.

Despite girlband Little Mix being crowned 2011 winners, Devlin had a clear lead at the top of the voting statics from weeks two to five.

Kelly Rowland's act only slipped to second place when comeback kid Amelia Lily returned in week six, with the pink-haired teenager also winning the vote in week eight.


Champions Little Mix topped the vote in week seven and throughout the semi final, and eventually went on to beat runner-up Marcus Collins in last night's final (11th December).

Meanwhile, it has been revealed that judges Gary Barlow and Louis Walsh predicted axed contestant Frankie Cocozza would win the entire series at the Boot Camp stage of the competition.

The judges picks were revealed during spin-off show The Xtra Factor, where it also emerged that Kelly Rowland had selected Janet Devlin for the win, while victorious mentor Tulisa Contostavlos had chosen Nu Vibe.


Host Dermot O'Leary was another supporter of Janet, as Caroline Flack picked Craig Colton and Olly Murs was the closest to getting it correct after choosing Misha Bryan for the title - who eventually finished in fourth place.

None of the judges or hosts could have predicted Little Mix's win, as the girlband were put together after Boot Camp.

They are now expected to make £8million since winning the show, with XF boss Simon Cowell hoping to turn them into the next Spice Girls.
