The X Factor bubble seems to firmly have burst after coming 3rd in a poll on Weekend TV, placing it just 2% ahead of Take Me Out

An poll has firmly reinforced Strictly Come Dancing as the Crown of Weekend TV, with a whopping 47% of the British public choosing it as their favourite thing to watch over the weekend.

Watching celebrities battle it out in the jungle also proved a hit, with I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here receiving 33% of the vote.

Mean while The Abba and Motown themed show couldn't save The X Factor, which pulled in just 8% of the votes placing it only 2% ahead of Take Me Out and Celebrity Come Dine With Me, who both attracted 6% of votes.

The poll ran from Friday evening through to Sunday night on and received 10,495 votes.
