Speaking at the Ibiza Judge?셲 House of LOUIS WALSH he said: ??It?셲 kinda weird really. I still enjoy it. The casting process is kind of odd now. There?셲 a group of people who tend to do those.

?쏻hen we first started it, especially for the first few, before it went quite dark, we all really enjoyed it.

?쏝ut now I think the world has changed so much, the people who are on it are almost all people who have been on other shows. That said, I still think it ticks the same box it always has.??/p>

Dermot also used his year off to watch Saturday-night rival Strictly.
