DERMOT O’Leary’s handsome face is never too far from our TV screens.
The X Factor presenter brings his own brand of cheeky humour as he introduces viewers to potential superstars, but what do we know about the man himself?
How old is Dermot O’Leary?
Dermot O’Leary was born on May 24, 1973, which makes him 45 years old. He stands at 5 foot 9 inches tall.
The presenter was born and raised in Colchester, Essex but has dual British and Irish citizenship thanks to his parents, who moved over to England from the Emerald Isle before he was born.
Dermot began his career on BBC Essex before moving into TV, being one of the original presenters of Channel 4’s T4 strand.
He hosted original Big Brother spin-off show, Big Brother’s Little Brother from 2001 until 2008 and took over from Kate Thornton as The X Factor host in 2007.
Dermot also has a keen interest in birds and has been contributing to BBC Radio 4’s Tweet of the Week, where he discusses the birds that he has spotted that day.
Who is Dermot’s wife Dee Koppang?
Dermot has been with his wife Dee Koppang since 2002 when they met at a TV production company.
While Dermot moved into presenting, Dee is a producer and a director, and the couple became engaged in New York in November 2011.
They then married in Kent in September 2012 and Dermot has previously expressed a hope they will become parents one day.
He told Fabulous magazine in 2014: “I would like to have kids soon, but I’m only half of the equation”.
