Jones Still Fancies X Factor US Chances

Former T4 presenter Steve Jones says he still fancies his chances of being the host of the US version of X Factor.

Previously, X Factor (UK) host Dermot O’Leary had claimed he was the only British person still being considered for the role, but Welsh presenter Jones says he has heard differently.

“I know for a fact that Dermot wasn’t the only British presenter in the mix,â€? he said. “[I’m] Still in the mix. From the meetings I’ve had about it, I’m still there.â€?

“Whoever Simon Cowell takes on board will be the right choice. The man’s a genius.â€?

Jones is certainly talking the talk of a man who really wants the job, as flattering Simon Cowell is unlikely to damage your chances.
