Great news for Dermot O’Leary, as he’s reportedly ready to sign a new three year deal with the X Factor.
Despite being let go last year, the Irish host is apparently in talks with Simon Cowell about a big return – but it’ll certainly cost the music mogul, as Dermot has been told his can “name his price” for the new contract.
An insider told The Sun, “Dermot will come back to The X Factor. Talks are under way on his deal, but everything is positive.
“Everyone, including Dermot and Simon, has the will to make it work.
“Producers have realised you can’t take any risks with the presenter of the show. You need someone who can cope with live tv.
“It’s a massive skill and there are not many people who have it. There is even talk Dermot could be offered the presenting job for the rest of the show’s life when a new deal is signed with ITV.”
The news comes shortly after last year’s hosts, Olly Murs and Caroline Flack confirmed they’ll be leaving the show following their one year stint, along with judge Nick Grimshaw.
