The original series of the weekly chart countdown ran for over 40 years, before being eventually shelved in 2006.
However, with a number of British acts like Sam Smith, Rita Ora and Ed Sheeran all doing well in the charts - and the announcement the weekly pop chart will soon be announced on a Friday instead of a Sunday - The Mirror have claimed that the show could be about to make a comeback.
“The new Friday night charts could be the perfect tie-in - with ‘Top Of The Pops’ a brilliant start to the weekend.”
The source continues: “Dermot’s departure from ‘The X Factor’ is another piece of the jigsaw.
“Teaming him with Fearne would be a brilliant move. He already presents a popular Radio 2 show - fronting ‘Top Of The Pops’ is a logical step.”
Earlier this week, it was suggested that Dermot may have a future as a contestant on ‘Strictly Come Dancing’, while he’s also been named one of the bookies’ top choices to replace Jeremy Clarkson on ‘Top Gear’.
