    "Strictly" no "X Factor."

    Looking forwards to the new season of Strictly Come Dancing ,It has been a favorite even after the presenters changed?

    Saw the start of the new Improved X factor and after 10 minutes turned over just more pretentious tosh ,how the show gets as much press as it does is beyond me ,do I care how thin Cheryl is.?

    So Strictly for us which will you be watching ...Taffy

        I think they are both a load of tosh, although have seen far more of X factor than I have of SCD, Mrs Delboy controls the remote in this household and she is not a fan of SCD. Did see the last 20 minutes of Saturday's X factor, the look of Cheryl did distract me from the rest of the show.

        Prefer the Voice myself, which I watch via iPlayer on my iPad and listen via my Bose headphones, thankfully it does not have the SC hype.

          Neither. They are both garbage.

              Have never watched X Factor and gave up on Strictly a few years. Could not stand the constant shouting and screaming.

                Neither, early Saturday evening is a perfect time to watch a film or catch up on a box set rather than the rubbish they put on TV

                  We've applied for SCD audience tickets for the fourth year running. Fingers crossed for this year as we have been unlucky so far.
                  We love SCD and the daily It Takes Two on BBC2
                  I have a real soft spot for Peter Andre too.......yes I know! Nothing wrong with a bit of escapism

                    I read there was a bit of an argument between a contestant and Mr SC during the 6 chair part of X factor, resulting in SC throwing the contestant off the show.

                    This is what the contestant had to say on Twitter

                    "He added: “Some of the judges on X Factor . . .  are like Stevie Wonder judging a painting contest.

                    “Bring back good music. Not laughing at people, pointless entertainment #xfactor.”

                      Will watch strictly then watch programs we have recorded through the week ,or watch a film ,
                      Saturday night has been just about the worst for watchable programs as I can remember...Taffy

                        I only watched X factor once and that was enough, all of the panel were so far up their own backsides, it was cringeworthy, especially SC.

                        I do watch 'Strictly' but do miss some episodes, depends on who is taking part. I gave up for a while because 'Brucie' drove me nuts, nice man but well past his 'sell by date' as far as Entertainment is concerned!
