Dermot O'Leary says he's set to put on his dancing shoes for The X Factor when it returns to screens later this summer.

Dermot is back in charge after a year away but it seems as tough we'll hardly notice the difference.

Chatting on This Morning, Dermot revealed he already has plans to reprise his trademark dance numbers to open The X Factor's live shows on Saturday night.

"I’ll speak to my choreographer," he said this week. "I think we’ve got to do a few with the tongue firmly in its cheek."

Meanwhile, Dermot promised a more "funny" series this year.

“It feels very warm and it feels very funny," Dermot teased. "It doesn’t feel cruel. Simon being a dad might have something to do with that, but he reacts to a ‘no’ in a completely different way.”

The X Factor 2016 start date is expected for the last weekend of August on ITV.
