Cat Deeley not in talks for US X Factor

Cat Deeley has claimed she hasn’t been approached to present the US version of The X Factor.

The So You Think You Can Dance host said there was no truth to newspaper reports that she and Dermot O’Leary were being lined-up to front the prime-time show when Simon Cowell brings it to America.

“I don’t know a thing about it, not a thing,” the presenter insisted at a special party in Hollywood, where her close friend Matthew Williamson was being named Britweek Designer Of The Year.

But Cat joked she’d be willing to take Simon’s calls if he wanted a chat.

“You never know, providing I’m not chatting to someone else,” she laughed.

The glamorous presenter said she was a big fan of Dermot.

“I love Mr O’Leary, I’ve been a big, big fan of Mr O’Leary’s since I worked with him – which is going to really give my age away – but probably about 10 years ago,” she said.

“I think it was the Smash Hits Poll Winners Party or something like that, and we had a blast, so I’ve always been a fan of Mr O’Leary.”
