Current X Factor host Dermot O'Leary has responded to reports that have suggested Simon Cowell and Cheryl Cole will both be leaving the show this year. Speaking about the rumours, the UK host and US X Factor hopeful said he didn't think anyone could replace the pair on the programme.
“I can’t think of anybody who could replace Simon and Cheryl, I really can’t," Dermot is quoted as saying.
He continued: "There’s no one I’d want to see on the panel but them. I want the old team back, the old gang.
"The viewers want to keep them, too. There’s no one else.”
Despite Dermot's comments however it seems the show is set for a big shake up this year, with the News Of The World yesterday reporting that the new series could well see an entirely new panel.
