SHOOTING and interviewing Dermot O’Leary is never boring, but the fun and games are always offset by a mild panic that we’re going to run out of time. Charming and charismatic, he chats incessantly, making time for everyone on set and dishing out plenty of the Dermot hugs that make him such a reassuring presence on The X Factor, which he’s now in his 11th year hosting.

Not that Dermot himself is anxious – remaining calm amid chaos probably stands him in good stead on the madness that is the ITV talent show. “You do feel like you are the conductor of the campest runaway train in town,” he says. “You don’t want to be the boring one but, you know, someone’s gotta get to the ad break!” Keeping control of the panel this year might … [Read more...] about Dermot O’Leary on romance, reining in Robbie Williams and why The X Factor rules supreme

I won't lie to you, I cried last Sunday - twice.I knew I was going to.
