Dermot O'Leary thinks X Factor should be more like Strictly!



Dermot O'Leary has had his say on how to improve the X Factor... and he isn't holding back!

The former host thinks that Simon Cowell should rest the show for a year and the 'Six-Chair Challenge' should be scrapped!

"I was really uncomfortable about the Six Chair Challenge," he went on to say that it's "brutal" for "not being a nice bit of television".

Dermot even thinks that the talent show should take inspiration from Saturday night rival show 'Strictly Come Dancing'...

"I don't think it's a particularly nice bit of television. One of the reasons people like Strictly is because Strictly is a very warm show, and I think you've got to keep that in mind."


Dermot is preparing to host the National Television Awards next week... don't expect many gongs for X Factor!
