runo Tonioli has slammed "The X Factor".
The TV star's show "Strictly Come Dancing" has trounced "The X Factor" in the ratings once again and Bruno says the secret to the BBC programme's success is simple.
He told Daily Star Sunday: "We beat "X Factor" because we're better.
"I don't feel bad for Simon Cowell, no. I didn't watch "X Factor" this year."
Meanwhile, Joe McFadden and Katya Jones lifted "Strictly's Glitterball trophy this year and the show was watched by an incredible 13.1 million viewers.
A message on the show's Twitter account revealed: "An amazing peak of 13.1m watched the #Strictly Final to see Joe and Katya lift the Glitter Ball trophy! Average 11.6m & huge 55.9% share."
When asked by the show's hosts Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman if he ever thought he'd win the show, Joe said: "Not in a million years. It's completely surreal, and I'm so in awe of everyone who started all those weeks ago. We've all become such a tight unit and I love them all to bits. Every one of us here are winners because we've gotten here. I love every single one of them to bits."
The 42-year-old actor had nothing but kind words for his dance partner either, whom he dubbed as "utterly amazing", and thanked her for her work training him every week.
Speaking about Katya, he said: "This woman is the most amazing woman. Thank you so much for sticking with me and persevering with me and being the most amazing artist, and dancer, and counsellor, and slave driver. She's amazing. Utterly, utterly amazing."
The pair best finalists Alexandra Burke and Gorka Marquez, Debbie McGee and Giovanni Pernice and Gemma Atkinson and Aljaž Škorjanec to win the trophy.
