The X Factor have confirmed that Dermot O’Leary will return to host the new series.

Dermot has previously hosted the show for eight years but last year he was replaced with Caroline Flack and Olly Murs.

Dermot O’Leary spoke about his return, he said: “I’m very flattered to be asked back to The X Factor, and am currently dusting off my dancing shoes. There is nothing more exciting than hosting live TV on a Saturday night.

“The show is naturally very close to my heart, after having hosted it for 8 years. I’m really looking forward to it, and excited to be back”.

Simon Cowell added: “Dermot’s back! Hooray! And so is his dancing! Welcome home Dermot.”

Not only is Dermot returning but so is the intimate room auditions where aspiring stars will find themselves face to face in front of the judges in a very personal setting. If they impress three or more of the judges, they will move on to the next stage of the competition.

The X Factor returns later this year.
