More juicy gossip from the One Direction premiere came from Dermot O’Leary.

When being questioned about the possibility of  Simon Cowell returning as a judge, Dermot let slip that this series would be Gary Barlow’s last series on the show. “If Simon comes back, the dynamic would be very different. Gary wouldn’t be there – he’ll be leaving at the end of this year.”

However could it be that Dermot is also vying for a place on the panel? The show’s current host revealed that he would love to be a judge. “I’d be so strict – I’d be nice and strict. I’d be so hardcore. I’d say it how it is.”

The revelation escalated rumours that this series would be the final series. Louis Walsh announced he will be departing after this series and returning judge, Sharon Osbourne is only contracted for one series. The producers also had a tough time convincing audience favourite, Nicole Scherzinger to return as was torn between the show and her music career.
