Dermot O' Leary's US X Factor dreams dashed

Dermot: better with no clothes on

X FACTOR frontman Dermot O’Leary has seen his American dream dashed by Simon Cowell, who wants a dual-host format.

The presenter had been short-listed for the same job in the US but the show will be fronted by a ­“non-conventional” female superstar and a male pin-up singer.

O’Leary has now renewed his deal with the UK X Factor but Cowell has yet to make his mind up on the judges. Dermot, 37, said: “I am obviously ­disappointed that I didn’t get the American gig. I would have loved a crack at it. At least I was the only Brit to make the ­shortlist.”

An insider said: “It’s no reflection on Dermot. The US show is just going a different way. He is happy with the new deal, while Simon is confident he will deliver an all-star cast over in the US.”
