He could start attending a Saturday night book club. He can finally go on a cinema date on a weekend. Or, of course, he could finally become a contestant on rival show ‘Strictly Come Dancing’.
Craig Revel-Horwood, who has been a judge on the BBC dancing show since its launch in 2004, has said in an interview that he would love to see Dermot shimmy on over to the dance-floor to try and lift the coveted Glitter-ball trophy.
“Now we can get Dermot, I’d love to see him dance on ‘Strictly’. I’ve heard that he might be quite good actually.”

Earlier this week, after much speculation, it was confirmed that she would be taking over from Dermot on the show, co-presenting with Olly Murs, who she used to host alongside on the talent show’s ITV2 spin-off.
Although Dermot's dancing on 'The X Factor' was never exactly going to win him 'tens across the board' from the 'Strictly' judges, he did recently complete a dance-a-thon for Comic Relief, raising a whopping £643,336 for the charity in the process.
He isn’t the only former ‘X Factor’ star to have been linked with a stint on ‘Strictly’, though, with past winners Sam Bailey and Joe McElderry both expressing an interest in strutting their stuff on the ‘Strictly’ dance floor in recent interviews.
