Dermot O'Leary in running to host US X Factor

Dermot O’Leary has confirmed that he would like to host the American edition of 'The X Factor'.

The presenter is said to be in the running for the job after he impressed network executives with a screen test earlier this month.

When Time Out magazine asked him if he would like to present the US version of the hit show, he said: “It would be duplicitous of me to say that I wouldn’t be interested in it - of course, I would. I do want to work out there.”

O’Leary praised Ryan Seacrest, the man thought to be his main rival to host 'X Factor' in the US, saying: “He’s done a great job, the guy’s a workaholic. He’s got nerves of steel.”
