X Factor host Dermot O'Leary has said that he hopes The Voice UK will do well in the ratings.

The hunky telly presenter told the Daily Star Sunday: “I loved The Voice, I honestly thought it was terrific. I especially thought Tom Jones and Jessie J were incredible."

And despite all the criticism of The X Factor from The Voice UK coaches, Dermot insisted: “I want the show to do well.

"I think it is good for TV and I also think it’s good for the X Factor because it will make us up our game."

He added: “Simon may say there’s no room for another singing show but I’m sure he’d think differently if he had come up with the idea.”

Meanwhile Dermot revealed he hadn't seen Tulisa's sex tape... because he's too busy!

"I’m well aware what happened but I promise I didn’t watch it," he told the newspaper.

Dermot O'Leary continues with The X Factor 2012 auditions on Saturday in London.
