Dermot O’Leary Misses Out On US X Factor Role

The presenter will not appear on the US version of the show.

Dermot O’Leary will not present the US version of the X Factor, it has been confirmed.

Despite missing out, O’Leary has insisted he is not too upset as he fared better than other British hopefuls.

He said: “I am obviously disappointed that I didn’t get the American gig. I would have loved a crack at it.

“At least I was the only Brit to make the shortlist.”

It is also thought that Cheryl Cole has missed out on a spot on the judging panel.

This year’s X Factor Live Tour began last month, and X Factor tickets are available for live concerts running until May this year, taking place at arenas across the UK. Stars such as Matt Cardle, One Direction, Rebecca Ferguson and Cher Lloyd are all taking part.
