Xtra Factor's Caroline Flack has defended the amount of deadlocks on this year's show.
So far there's been three deadlocks in four results shows, with the judges only coming to a decision for the first time this series last weekend.
"There's been lots of talk on Twitter this year about the rights and wrongs of Dead Lock. But Dead Lock is fair," Caroline said.
She explained: "It's the most democratic way of seeing who the public want to stay in. At the moment, I think it's going to deadlock purely because the judges have actually been giving their honest opinions. So thank God there is Deadlock."
Writing in her X Factor Insider column for heat magazine, Caroline added: "I don't think they should do away with the judges' opinions, because we at least find out who voted for who."
