Louisa Johnson's X Factor winner's single has sold fewer than 80,000 copies to date.

That's 25,000 fewer sales than Alexandra Burke's Hallelujah managed in its first DAY on sale back in 2008.

Lousia's cover of Forever Young ranks as the lowest selling of the show's winner's songs to date, total figures posted by the Official Charts Company reveal.

Alexandra's Hallelujah tops the list with a total of 1.297 million copies sold to date, but she's set to soon be overtaken.

James Arthur's Impossible currently stands at 1.294 million copies despite being released four years later.

Shayne Ward's That's My Goal is the third biggest seller of the past 12 series, with a total of 1.11 million copies shifted since 2005.

While latest X Factor winner Louisa's track is last in the standings, it's fair to say that winner's songs have no reflection on long term success.

James Arthur of course lasted just the year on Simon Cowell's Syco record label while Little Mix, who rank just above Louisa with their winner's song Cannonball, are currently working on a fourth album.

Louisa's first post X Factor song, a collaboration with Clean Bandit on Tears, has so far sold over 400,000 copies.
