Dermot O'Leary In The Running To Present The Voice UK
The X Factor just doesn't feel the same this year and a large part of that is down to the fact that Dermot O'Leary isn't fronting the show anymore.
Olly and Caroline are doing a good job but Dermot is one of a kind and we miss him having the craic with the contestants.
As source told The Mirror: “When The Voice joins ITV it’s going to have a new feel - they want to put their own stamp on it, and that looks likely to include a new presenter.
“Dermot is hugely popular with viewers and knows exactly what he’s doing - there’s no better choice for a host and he will be first in line".
According to the publication, ITV paid £33 million to air the reality TV show from 2017.
Dermot was the X Factor host for eight years
Speaking at the time, BBC's head of entertainment, Mark Linsey said: “The BBC is incredibly proud of The Voice, but the fifth series which starts in January will be our last.
“We always said we wouldn’t get into a bidding war or pay inflated prices to keep the show, and it’s testament to how the BBC has built the programme up - and established it into a mainstay of the Saturday night schedule - that another broadcaster has poached it",
It sounds like Dermot might return to our Saturday nights even if we do have to wait until 2017...
