Dermot O'Leary is making a return to Saturday night TV as the host of a new show!

When Dermot stepped down as X Factor host after eight years, we were pretty gutted about it.

But it turns out there's a silver lining, because Dermot is making a return to Saturday night TV as the host of a brand new BBC show alongside The Stig of Top Gear fame!

That might sound like an unlikely duo, but it actually makes a lot of sense given the programme revolves around cars. The Getaway Car will see families compete against each other in driving challenges for a cash prize.

After the contestants have competed against each other, the winner will go up against The Stig, which as Top Gear fans will know is no easy task!

Speaking about the new venture, Dermot said: "This is a show that's really about relationships. We all think we are great drivers, but what tickled me most is seeing how people, who obviously love each other very much, speak to each other when they are behind the wheel of a car.

"It brings out the worst in all of us... but in a fun way. It's a warm show that will stretch a family's patience with those they love most in the world."

The 12-part series will air next year, and we can't wait!
