X Factor executives have been forced to deny that they fixed the votes during the results show on Sunday evening, after receiving backlash from viewers of the show.

Fans were outraged during Sunday's episode of the ITV1 talent show after Carolynne Poole was booted off the competition when she was left in the bottom two with Rylan Clark.

Judge Louis Walsh left the deciding vote to deadlock meaning the act with the lowest public votes would be axed.

Viewers noticed that the show's producer Richard Holloway spoke to Louis just before he sent the vote to deadlock, sparking speculation that he had been told what to say.

"We regularly chat to the judges during the show - they don't wear earpieces like (host) Dermot (O'Leary) so we have to speak to them throughout the programme, on anything from timings to running order changes," Holloway said in a statement.

"On Sunday night I was telling Louis the order the judges would vote in and that he would be last."

The fix denial comes after fans have begun campaigning on Twitter to boycott the rest of the series.
