X Factor: Who Will Take Over From Dermot?

Despite suggesting that he may step away from the X Factor, William Hill are offering 1/4 that Dermot O’Leary will be the host of the 2015 show. Current Xtra Factor presenter, Sarah Jane Crawford is the 7/1 second favourite, with Olly Murs and Caroline Flack both offered at 10/1.


Former JLS singer Marvin Humes is 14/1 (the same price as Ant and Dec) while Steve Brookstein is 100/1.


“All signs point to Dermot staying as host on the X Factor, however, there is no shortage of runners should the big man decide he is stepping down,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.


To host next year’s X Factor: 1/4 Dermot O’Leary; 7/1 Sarah Jane Crawford; 10/1 Olly Murs; 10/1 Caroline Flack; 12/1 Ben Shephard; 14/1 Marvin Humes; 14/1 Ant and Dec; 25/1 Konnie Huq; 25/1 Jake Quickenden; 25/1 Rylan; 33/1 James Corden; 100/1 Steve Brookstein…others on request
