reality tv betting scam?

From C4 news:
Reality TV shows like the X Factor, Strictly Come Dancing Big Brother and I'm A Celebrity appear to have been the targets of a massive betting scam.

Online bookie Betfair became suspicious when large amounts of money were placed immediately before results were announced on the X Factor.

According to reports, fraudsters were tipped off by a telecoms worker who had access to the results of viewers' polls before they were announced on air.
