Dermot desperate to host US X Factor 



Published: Today

DERMOT O'Leary has revealed he is desperate to front the US version of The X Factor - but fears Simon Cowell will give the job to an American presenter.

The 36-year-old star has had a series of meetings in Los Angeles about the show.

But Simon has yet to confirm any signings. Dermot told today's Closer magazine: "I would do anything to get on that show - but I think Simon will go with an American presenter. It's a bummer."

There is still a chance Dermot will front the show, which launches on Fox next year, along with other stars from the British version.

Cheryl Cole, 26, has been tipped for a judge's role alongside Simon.

Even Louis Walsh, 57, is thought to be in the frame.

But it is understood that music mogul Simon, 50, does not want the talent show to be too Brit heavy.

Oh God NO. Laura will want to lynch me but I think hosting the UK version is more than enough. I'm not a fan anyway but this desperation is really making me dislike him more.

They've got plenty of American presenters out there, more than good enough for the job.
don't rate Dermot at all!!

Dermot is totally and utterly wasted on the X Factor, don't want to see him whoring himself out on our version, let alone the US version
