We meet the real star of The X Factor: Dermot O'Leary's, ahem, package

Hi, Dermot O’Leary‘s bulge.

How are you finding this sudden attention?

Well, I’ve actually been more than prominent on the show for the past six series.

Honestly, I’m not sure how people have failed to spot me ’til now.

We’ll take a look at some old tapes.

We thought you were just taking inspiration from Olly Murs

Olly took inspiration from me!

I was here first.

If you really want to know, I think his bulge had a rummage through my section of the wardrobe department.



There’s only room for one pair of tight pants round here.

And as the lovely Olly‘s no longer presenting The Xtra Factor, it’s my time to shine.

I’ll let you decide who has the best bulge out of the two of us, but it’s clearly me.

That’s us told!

So who are your bulge-spirations?

Jon Hamm‘s bulge is great – it has its own Tumblr accounts.

Does anyone want to make an account for me?

Oh, and Mark Wahlberg‘s is great, too.

They’re both Hollywood bulges, though – I’d like to think I’m the bulgiest bulge in the UK.

OK, no need to get cocky…
