X Factor 2012: Christopher Maloney topped public vote for seven weeks! See figures in full here, then pat winner James Arthur some more

Pop your math hat on! We have all the TERRIFYING stats from the X Factor public vote…

It’s math fact - Chris Maloney was winning The X Factor 2012 for a whopping seven weeks in a row.

James Arthur - or King Arthur to some (i.e this heatworld super fan) was crowned The X Factor 2012 champion last night. Hurrah, hurrah, see all the pictures here, hurrah.

BUT HE WASN’T WINNING UNTIL WEEK 8. CHRIS MALONEY WAS. THE SAME CHRIS MALONEY WHO BOWED OUT OF THE LIVE FINAL BECAUSE HE HAD A “sore throat” (*cough* alleged hangover and subsequent Twitter rant *cough*).

Simon Cowell admitted he was worried that Christopher Maloney was going to win - thereby suggesting that all-seeing Simon had, err, seen the below stats and facts - and as such knew how close we’d come to crowning Mr Maloney.

The X Factor lot released the stats after James Arthur beat Jahmene Douglas – winning with 54% in the epic final on Sunday night.

Have a look at the figures in full below, then imagine how different our world could have been this Monday morning… cue dramatic music… Oh and talking of figures, just check out Rihanna's smokin' hotness here.

We miss The X Factor.
