STRICYLY COME DANCING was beaten by X factor in the ratings battle last night - after it came out on top on Satruday.

Last night, the ITV1 show drew an average audience which was 1.5 million higher than the one for the BBC1 dance contest.

And its peak audience was three million higher than Strictly’s, according to overnight figures.

Strictly won the Saturday night battle with 1.1 million more viewers.

But for the Sunday night exit shows, X Factor was back on top with an average 9.6 million tuning in for the hour-long show (including viewers on the +1 catch-up channel), while Strictly - in which Johnny Ball was axed - drew 8.1 million.

The X Factor’s results show peaked at 11.7 million, the highest figure for the series so far, while Strictly hit 8.7 million during its 40-minute programme.
