Steve Jones To Get US X Factor Gig Over ‘Ugly’ Dermot?

Channel 4’s Welsh hunk has been tipped to snatch the role of US X Factor host from under the nose of Dermot O’Leary because he is considered ‘better looking’ than his gruesome rival.

This statement from American TV bosses flies in the face of popular opinion among British women, many of whom consider Dermot to be one of the finest specimens of British manhood. In the land of the blind, the one-eyed man is king we suppose..

Jones revealed that he is the running for the job at this week’s National Television Awards, where he told reporters: “I’m hearing good things.” However, he quickly poured water on those hopes by coming over all modest a few seconds later. “I don’t want to jinx anything by thinking I’ve got it. One day I hear it’s going my way, one day I’m less sure.”

In our opinion, neither is likely to get the gig as despite Simon Cowell’s protestations, US chiefs want an American to do presenting duties.
