More than 40,000 fans of X Factor reject Laura White have urged Ofcom to start an investigation into voting procedures on the show.Organisers of a petition calling for White's reinstatement following her shock dismissal by the judges last Saturday have made a formal complaint to the broadcasting watchdog.

The complaint says there has been a lack of transparency in X Factor voting and that viewers have told how they could not get through to vote for the aspiring star.

A spokesman for the show said: 'We would never reveal the voting figures during the competition, as it could give contestants an unfair advantage and spoil the competition for viewers.

'At the end of the series, we are more than happy to reveal the voting pattern to the public which will very clearly demonstrate who the viewers have been voting for each week.'We would like to reiterate that there were absolutely no issues with the phone lines or the voting system during last week's X Factor.

They are subject to rigorous procedures and protocols.'The viewers vote for the act they want to keep in the competition and last Saturday the simple fact is Laura White and Ruth Lorenzo were in the bottom two because they had the least amount of votes.' The 'Laura White Was Robbed' petition stood at 13,000 at website Petition Online The complaint, which appears on website Petition Online, is also backed by the founder of a website, amazingtunes.com, which is selling tracks White recorded before going on the show.

It states: "There is a body of evidence to suggest that there are major issues concerning telephone voting on the above programme.

"The main thrust of our complaint is that there is no transparency regarding the total number of votes and how many votes each contestant received."In addition many thousands of viewers are convinced that either their call was blocked or their vote misappropriated."Girls Aloud star Cheryl Cole, who was White's mentor, reportedly argued with Walsh after Saturday night's show, when her singer went head to head with Spanish contestant Ruth Lorenzo.Culture Secretary Andy Burnham even waded into the row, telling MPs that the "wonderful and talented" singer had been "harshly" treated by the judges.Leona Lewis, last year's winner, and Lily Allen have expressed their surprise at the outcome, with Lewis saying: "I was outraged, screaming at the TV and stuff.I was surprised."However, an X Factor official insisted there was 'absolutely no issues with phone lines'.She told The Daily Star: 'Our viewers vote for the act they want to keep in.Laura White and Ruth Lorenzo received the least votes.'Laura lost in the sing-off against Spanish singer Ruth Lorenzo.
