TV host Dermot O'Leary has reportedly made the shortlist for his dream job - presenting the American version of The X Factor, according to The Mirror.
The prolific presenter is believed to be the only British name on the list of six drawn up by executives at Fox. Simon Cowell recently revealed that final announcement will be made in the next few weeks.
"Dermot is still in with a great chance of getting the biggest job of his life, but he is in the dark at the moment," a source told the paper. "He has made the shortlist but there is some pretty stiff competition from a host of big names in America."
Others apparently on the shortlist are Extra presenter Mario Lopez, E!'s Jason Kennedy and actor Zac Efron.
