It looks like behind the scenes at The X Factor there’s actually a lot of love for the BBC One dance show.
Louis Walsh recently said of the rival show: “Listen, I watched Strictly last year. I found it boring. I got bored after a while.
“It was like, ‘Oh god, who are they and what are they doing?’ The X Factor is the most talked-about show on TV – everyone talks about The X Factor, no-one talks about Strictly.”
Strictly Come Dancing 2016 continues to announce their line up daily next week.
