Previously, X Factor (UK) host Dermot OâLeary had claimed he was the only British person still being considered for the role, but Welsh presenter Jones says he has heard differently.
âI know for a fact that Dermot wasnât the only British presenter in the mix,â? he said. â[Iâm] Still in the mix. From the meetings Iâve had about it, Iâm still there.â?
âWhoever Simon Cowell takes on board will be the right choice. The manâs 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.
