Dermot O’Leary QUITS ‘The X Factor UK’

Dermot O’Leary has quit The X Factor UK after being the host for eight years.

In a statement released by O’Leary he said: “After eight wonderful years on The X Factor it’s time for me to move on. I’d like to thank ITV, Simon [Cowell], The X Factor family and particularly the viewers, all of whom have been a big part of my life for so long.

“I’d like to wish the team all the best for the future, especially whoever takes over from me. You’re about to be the conductor on the most brilliant, runaway train in showbiz. Good luck you’ll love it!”

There are rumors that Dermot might replace Jeremy Clarkson on Top Gear on BBC.

As for his own replacement on The X Factor UK, former runner-up Olly Murs is on the shortlist.

I will miss Dermot so much!!!
