More X Factor 2016 voting results and stats have supposedly been leaked ahead of the final.

And they show it's looking likely to be the closest EVER result we've had in 13 years of the show.

Earlier this year it was reported that Honey G had topped the phone vote, however her subsequent elimination showed how turbulent the voting appears to be.

Now it's been claimed that ALL of the final four have each topped the vote at one point in the competition.

Matt Terry, Emily Middlemas, 5 After Midnight and Saara Aalto all remain in the contest and each have a real possibility of winning.

A source spilled to the Daily Mirror: "It's the most open the race has ever been as all four of the remaining contestants (Matt Terry, Emily Middlemas, 5 After Midnight and Saara Aalto) have come top in the public vote at least once during the competition.

It's supposedly the first time in history to have happened, with usually only one or two acts dominating the vote, although verified voting figures only support the claim back to 2008.

In any case, the key takeaway is that it's likely to be a very close result.

In the betting and ahead of the semi-final, Matt Terry continues to dominate the outright betting at 4/6, but Saara Aalto is attempting to close in on him after shortening to 9/4 from 8/1 last weekend, despite a trio of appearances in the sing off.

Aoife Heffron from BoyleSports said: “It’s between 5 After Midnight and Emily Middlemas for elimination in the X Factor semi-finals. 5 After Midnight haven’t recovered from that off key sing off with Honey G in punters eyes as they have already started to get behind their 5/4 price to be sent packing this weekend.”

She added “Emily Middlemas is a close 13/8 second favourite for the boot, suggesting it will be a sing off between the remaining Group and remaining Girl.”

The X Factor airs Saturday and Sunday night on ITV.
