Sean Dermot Finton O'Leary studied Media & Politics at Middlesex University, did a stint on BBC Radio Essex, entered TV as a runner, and we reckon he made his TV debut being embarrassed by Mel and Sue on Light Lunch (for which he did the warm-up too). Moving into presenting with Channel 4's youth strand T4, he really made his name hosting Big Brother's Little Brother but is probably most famous for The X Factor. He's also been a Radio 2 regular since 2004 and currently presents the Saturday breakfast show there.


Dermot is proud of the fact that he shares his birthday (24 May) with Bob Dylan. He also shares it with Eric Cantona and Queen Victoria.

His production company is called Murphia (Irish mafia, geddit?). Dermot was born in Colchester but his parents hail from Wexford.

He was named GQ Magazine's TV Personality of the Year in 2001.
