Dermot O'Leary Admits To Eyeing Up Top Gear Role
Dermot O' Leary has admitted that he would consider a presenting role on Top Gear but he would want to be the main man.
Speaking on Good Morning Britain this week, the heartthrob admitted he would love to host the BBC hit show but doesn't quite fancy his chances.
He said: "I love my cars but I think Chris is such a main man and he’s a big deal for me.
"He’s one of the reasons why I got into television in the first place but I would imagine he’d want his own team on it."
Presenter Kate Garraway went on to suggest that the presenter could join Chris' team but Dermot revealed he wasn't interested in playing the wing man.
He responded: "I doubt it. The thing is I think if I was going to do it I’d want to do what Chris is doing, he’s in charge of it."
Speaking about his recent departure from The X Factor, Dermot explained: "I won’t have a bad word said about it but it felt like the right time this year."
The star, who has also played down rumours that he is set to join the Strictly Come Dancing crew, recently admitted he would like to return to The X Factor for the Judges' Houses stage.
We can only dream...
