Dermot Oâ€™Leary is chuffed his tight pants are finally getting some recognition on The X Factor now that his lunchbox rival Olly Murs has skipped off.
The cheeky-chappy says heâ€™s surprised no one noticed before after causing a storm on Twitter with his packed-in spray-on jeans.
â€˜Well, Iâ€™ve actually been more than prominent on the show for the past six series,â€™ the host was quoted as saying by Now magazine.
â€˜Honestly, Iâ€™m not sure how people have failed to spot me â€˜til now.â€™
Insisting Murs stole his thunder and down-below headlines with his bulge, Dermot added: â€˜Olly took inspiration from me! I was here first. If you really want to know, I think his bulge had a rummage through my section of the wardrobe department.â€™
â€˜Thereâ€™s only room for one pair of tight pants round here,â€™ added the ladiesâ€™ favourite. â€˜And as the lovely Ollyâ€™s no longer presenting The Xtra Factor, itâ€™s my time to shine.â€™
Still, Derm admits he has a way to go in the pants stakes before he rivals the likes of Mad Men heartthrob Jon Hamm, adding: â€˜Jon Hammâ€™s bulge is great â€“ it has its own Tumblr accounts.â€™
