It seems returning to the X Factor was a wise financial decision for Dermot O’Leary, as it’s been alleged that the Irish host signed an £8m deal for going back to the show.

Dermot was axed from the show last year, but after talks with the team, has since signed on for another four series.

According to reports today, this new contract could make him one of the highest paid presenters on UK tv, which is no mean feat.

A source told the Sun, “This is the comeback of all comebacks for Dermot. Just one year after Cowell axed him, he’s signing the contract of a lifetime.

‘It’s completely unheard of for one presenter to be paid £8million to host one show. There hasn’t been a deal like ti since Jonathan Ross was getting millions a year from the BBC to host his chat show.

“X Factor just didn’t work without Dermot. Getting him to come back was absolutely essential for its future.”

Go on, Dermot!
