The end of X Factor boosts ratings, as 11 million tune in to the final Strictly show
And ratings enjoyed a much-needed boost after the end of X Factor last week, with 11 million tuning in to watch Saturday's show.
But the winner Chris reveals his busy training routines have left him in the doghouse with girlfriend Sarah Alexander.
The star also cut short a holiday with his beau to join the Strictly line-up.
‘That went down very badly. I have to say I have been pushing it. Not only did I leave her on holiday, I also decided this was a good time to move out of our flat and buy a house,' he said.
'To make matters worse, I also didn't realise I was going to survive until Christmas so I haven't done any Christmas shopping or helped out with Christmas at all. So I am permanently in the dog house.'
