Simon Cowell: There Was No Tension When I Spoke To Dermot O’Leary About X Factor Return
So now you know.
Dermot hosted The X Factor for eight years before handing the reins over to Caroline Flack and Olly Murs last year.
Last month, he confirmed that he’d be returning to presenting duties after Caroline and Olly both left the show, saying: “I’m very flattered to be asked back to The X Factor, and am currently dusting off my dancing shoes. There is nothing more exciting than hosting live TV on a Saturday night.”
Revealing all about how that ‘return’ meeting went, Simon has insisted that there was no awkwardness or tension, despite Dermot previously suggesting that he should rest the ITV show for a bit.
