Dermot O'Leary reveals X Factor wardrobe malfunction that left him exposed!

Dermot O'Leary

X Factor host Dermot O'Leary has confessed to having had a wardrobe malfunction last year's show after ripping his trousers.

Speaking to The Sun's TV Buzz magazine this weekend, the hunky telly host recalls: “I remember having a wardrobe malfunction on The X Factor.

"I had this tight-fitting Alexander McQueen suit and felt the trousers rip...from pole to pole, shall we say. I just had to skilfully apply a safety pin and hope for the best. It was terrifying.”

Meanwhile, with The X Factor currently off-air, Dermot has been signed to front red carpet coverage for this year's BAFTAs for the first time.

He tells the magazine: “I haven’t got a list of red carpets dos and don’ts...I’ve not done this before, but I think it’s a given that I’ll be trying not to stand on any gowns.

"I’ll be over the moon if I get to interview Meryl Streep – though I’d be mortified if I stood on her dress!”

And Dermot has some rather unique ideas for ways to improve coverage of the event, adding: “I’d also like a doggie cam for Uggie the dog from the film ‘The Artist’. I want it strapped to his back. Let’s see the red carpet through Uggie’s eyes.”
