Speaking about Simon apologising for the decision, Dermot said:  “We had that conversation a while ago. Simon said sorry as much as Simon can ever say sorry.”

He continued:  “He said he made a mistake, but it was a good mistake, and I was sat there like, ‘How did he turn that around?'”

The host added that he was happy to return to the show.

“I definitely felt refreshed going back to the X Factor, you never know what’s round the corner.”

Auditions for the show ended last weekend, which next weekend’s focusing on bootcamp.

Speaking on this year’s series, Dermot said: “We’re a British celebration of eccentrics. Overall, we’re very comfortable. We enjoy making the show as a team.”
