Dermot O'Leary Digs At 'X Factor' With 'Strictly Come Dancing' Support At Glamour Awards

Ex ‘X Factor’ host Dermot O’Leary has taken a swipe at his former show by supporting its biggest rival ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ at Tuesday (2 June) night’s Glamour Awards.

The presenter - who left the ITV talent show earlier this year after eight years - handed out a gong to ‘Strictly’ hosts Claudia Winkleman and Tess Daly, who won the award for Best Presenters.

Since leaving ‘The X Factor’, Dermot has been replaced by Caroline Flack on Olly Murs as host for the upcoming 12th series, and has also been linked to a role on ‘Strictly’.

Judge Craig Revel-Horwood has backed him to appear as a contestant when the BBC ballroom show returns in the autumn.

He told The Mirror: “I know Dermot has been part of ‘X Factor’ for ages and of course we’ve had people on Strictly that have come through, like Caroline [Flack] for instance.

“Now we can get Dermot, I’d love to see him dance on ‘Strictly’. I’ve heard that he might be quite good actually.”

If his dances on ‘The X Factor’ were anything to go by, we're sure he'd stand a chance.
