Julien Macdonald was the talk of primetime TV this weekend as he managed to dominate both Strictly Come Dancing and The X Factor simultaneously.

Currently a contestant on the BBC’s ballroom dancing show, Julien managed to survive a second week in the dance-off, which saw Vanessa Feltz become the second celebrity to exit the show.

Meanwhile across on ITV, the British designer’s signature sequins sent the Twittersphere into debate as Ellie Goulding hit the X Factor stage in flesh-flashing style.

Fashion fans certainly weren’t short of Julien joy, as the rival shows clashed on the competitive weekend schedule.

Gushing over Ellie’s risque frock, Julien tweeted, ‘WOW! @elliegoulding is a goddess in gold wearing my dress tonight, Amazing!!!’

Nicole Scherzinger also got his seal of approval after sporting one of his designs on the show last night.

We love having Julien on our televisions!
