The show's went head to head numerous times last autumn, with the clashes knocking ratings for both shows.
However, Strictly did often beat its big reality telly rival.
The X Factor launched three weeks ago last month, and now Strictly bosses have confirmed their new series will begin next Saturday night.
The launch of Strictly will air at a rather early time of 6:30PM, with The X Factor starting later at 8:10PM.
A source said: “This is great news for fans who will now be able to watch both shows live.”
However BBC One series Doctor Who will clash with The X Factor this Saturday night, with the two shows overlapping by 10 minutes between 8:10PM and 8:20PM.
Both Strictly Come Dancing and The X Factor go live in October, and we expect to see some pretty aggressive scheduling from the Beeb after The Voice and BGT clashes earlier this year.
