Emma Willis says she's thrilled to see Dermot O'Leary back presenting X Factor, suggesting he IS the show.

Dermot announced in March he would return as host of the ITV talent show this year, after walking away from his role the previous season.

And, like us, Emma couldn't be happier!

She told us: "Dermot is absolutely brilliant and it feels like he is that show because he's done it for so long. So I think it's great that he's back.

"Shows like that are like swings and roundabouts – they work, then all of a sudden they'll have a couple of years where it's not going so great, then they come back again."

Announcing his return after a one-year hiatus, Dermot said: "I'm very flattered to be asked back to The X Factor, and am currently dusting off my dancing shoes. There is nothing more exciting than hosting live TV on a Saturday night. The show is naturally very close to my heart, after having hosted it for 8 years. I'm really looking forward to it, and excited to be back."

Meanwhile, Emma's just landed ANOTHER television show. Along with presenting Big Brother and The Voice UK, she found time to film What Would Be Your Miracle?, about people who are hoping their lives will be transformed by modern medicine.
