BBC and ITV have been going head-to-head recently for their Saturday night viewers.
BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing had its launch show last Saturday and managed to beat ITV’s The X Factor by an average of over a million viewers.
This is news that Simon Cowell is not exactly happy about and he has every reason to be not a happy bunny too. The music boss admitted that it was ‘round one’ to the BBC dance show.
Cowell tweeted on Sunday:
So the numbers are in. Strictly peak 9.4. X Factor peak 9.2. Round one to them. Such a shame they were both on at the same time!

According to a poll by Digital Spy, 65.63% of people enjoy the sparkle of Strictly whilst only 34.37% prefer the poptastic The X Factor.
