One Direction have been named as the most successful X Factor act by Amazon.

The boyband are the best-selling act to appear on the TV talent contest in terms of sales on both the US and UK Amazon sites. The group, who had Simon Cowell as a mentor, only came in third place on the seventh series of the show in 2010, but their third studio album recently beat Daft Punk's record of the fastest selling album of 2013, according to the Official Charts Company.

Olly Murs is the second best-selling artist from the show, after coming runner-up in 2009, followed by JLS, who were runners up in 2008.
Leona Lewis is the first act in the best-selling artists list to have actually won the show, coming in fourth place ahead of Rebecca Ferguson, who was a runner up in 2010.

This year's X Factor final will take place this Saturday (December 14) with the winner being announced on Sunday.

1. One Direction

3. JLS
4. Leona Lewis
5. Rebecca Ferguson
6. Little Mix
