William Hill axe Strictly v X Factor viewing figure bets
Britain's biggest bookmaker William Hill have decided to close their betting on which programme - The X Factor or Strictly Come Dancing - has the biggest weekly viewing figures.
"It has become clear that the X Factor cannot compete against the audience numbers that Strictly pulls in and our viewing figure market is no longer a viable one," said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams.

Kingsland Road were the shock act in the bottom two and William Hill are offering just 7/4 that they find themselves in the bottom two at the end of this Saturday night's show.
At the other end - Tamera Foster is the 6/4 favourite to win the show with Nicholas McDonald close behind at 3/1.
"Kingsland Road are in real danger of finding themselves in the bottom two for a second week running and I certainly would not bet against it," said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams.
