X Factor host Dermot O'Leary has said he hopes to see Jade Richards again on the show this year.
TellyMix revealed earlier this week that the 21-year-old from Fife had auditioned for the show again at the weekend, when auditions hit Scotland.
Speaking outside Glasgow's SECC, Dermot revealed: "Jade did really well last year and we were all surprised she didn’t get through to the studio, but the talent in the girls category was huge.
“I think she’s back this year. Someone said they saw her in the crowd so fingers crossed.”
The hunky X Factor host insisted he didn't know how this year's judges were yet, but joked that Louis would always be back on the show: “Even if the show’s not going any more, Louis will still turn up.”
Auditions for The X Factor 2012 conclude this Saturday in London.
