Which do you prefer.

For me it's Strictly all the way - New series start on 20th Sept and I can't wait smile

Strictly! Best thing about winter!

Strictly, havent even watched X-Factor, find it boring with all this supposed rivalry between judges.

muggglewump Sun 24-Aug-08 15:37:24

Both but last year we were more in Strictly because of Gethin Jones. Phwooar!

JulesJules Sun 24-Aug-08 15:38:57

No contest. Strictly!

strictly is fab!

I hate the way they sometimes use and humiliate people who possibly have learning difficulties on x factor.
borderline bullying, imo.

makes very uncomfortable watching.

I don't like the X-Factor auditions PAW because of the humiliation thing but I have them on for DD. She loves them and I don't have the heart not to let her watch

strictly ,Ds and I love it, DH doesn't so he makes the dinner!

KatyMac Sun 24-Aug-08 20:24:39

I'm trying to persuade DH that Sunday Nights starting in September would be a great time to start a ballroom class

But he is wavering

Strictly but I can't stand the warblings of people who are demented enough to think that Mariah Carey is talented.

PuppyMonkey Sun 24-Aug-08 20:27:52

Not that bothered about either. But would watch Strictly if you forced me...

I prefer my reality TV contestants without any visible talents, hence I enjoy BB more than any of 'em!!

I tried to get my boys into it last year but just got

'oh not the ^dancing again^ mummy'

Will try again this year [hopeful]

Strictly that is for sure...only watch x-factor if nothing better is on....

3andnomore Mon 25-Aug-08 00:31:21

Abba...put a video on for the boys and you watch strictly...or put them to bed grin

Strictly, definitely. Love to see them all in their sparkly gear and if they aren't very good, at least it's not painful on the ears!

Raahh Mon 25-Aug-08 15:53:57

Can i love both? I do love

It is def becoming a true sign that Autumn is coming, makes me think of bonfire night, Children in need, and tinsel...

Oh heck, August Bank holiday, and i'm actually thinking of (whisper) *****christmas*************

Will be interesting to see which left footed no hoper the great british public keep voting for this year. Is there anyone left at GMTV who hasn't been on Strictly?

Raahh Mon 25-Aug-08 15:54:40

~Bugger- that wasn't a very quiet whisper, was it! lol!

I watch Strictly for the glamour and excitement of it all and love it to bits!! I record X Factor to fast forward through the hard luck stories and public humiliation and get to the bits where people actually sing. Prefer the live shows, mainly because you see more of Dermot but record them too as i am too inpatient for pesky adverts
