Dermot Bannon opens up about sex symbol status!

When you think sex symbol you obviously think of the one and only Dermot Bannon.

And the TV architect is aware of his status, although he’s not entirely sure if he’s deserving.

Appearing on Angela Scanlon’s Ask Me Anything, she was quick to ask him how he felt about being one of the chosen few to be granted this status!

Unfortunately, poor Dermot was unprepared and struggled to get the words out.

“I’m bright red. It’s great – why wouldn’t it be? It’s not something I consider myself but if people think it, feel free!” he finally managed to say.

“At this stage, I will take any attention,” he joked.

On the topic of sex symbols, Dermot also shared his experience of designing Daniel O’Donnell’s house.

“Daniel for me was a bit of an enigma. I remember the first time walking around his house and seeing what’s stashed here and there.”

When asked if he took anything from the O’Donnell home during his stay, he revealed: “I stole a tea towel when we were at the concert in Bundoran. A couple of my mum’s friends are huge fans, so I stole it from the merch. He doesn’t know I have it.”

VIP Magazine caught up with Dermot earlier this year when we asked him if his three children had any interest in his line of work.

“My youngest has said that his third option would be to be an architect, obviously professional footballer is number one,” he admitted.

“As long as they’re happy that’s all that matters. I don’t care if any of them follow in my footsteps. By the time they’re old enough will TV still be around?!”
