And it turns out Honey G wasn't quite as popular with voters as you might think.

The full voting figures for this week’s ‘X Factor’ have been revealed, and it’s bound to be a tough read for runner-up Saara Aalto, who had been in the lead when the votes were frozen at the end of this weekend’s two-part finale.

When lines briefly closed on Saturday (10 December), Saara was ahead of eventual winner Matt Terry by almost two per cent, though following his performances the following night, the public eventually chose him as this year’s winner.

In Sunday’s (11 December) live show, Matt once again performed Sam Smith’s ‘The Writing’s On The Wall’, as well as a rendition of ‘One Day I’ll Fly Away’, which features in this year’s John Lewis Christmas advert.

Saara, meanwhile, chose to reprise Björk’s ‘It’s Oh So Quiet’, in addition to her version of the lesser-known Whitney Houston track, ‘I Didn’t Know My Own Strength’.

Still, it’s not too much of a surprise that Matt was eventually voted this year’s champion, as the statistics indicate that triumphed in the public vote for six out of 10 weeks.

The first time he missed out on the top spot was in Week 4, when Emily Middlemas performed Radiohead’s ‘Creep’, while a week later finalists 5 After Midnight topped the vote with their version of ‘Say You’ll Be There’ by Spice Girls.

For weeks eight and nine, it was Saara who topped the vote, though she eventually finished in second when the final rolled around.

And while she may have been the talking point of the whole series, it turns out Honey G was never quite the smash with viewers you might have expected, never coming in higher than fourth position in the votes.
