Dermot O'Leary opens up about his nights out with X Factor judges

Dermot O’Leary has opened up about his wild nights out with X Factor judges Gary Barlow, Sharon Osbourne and Nicole Scherzinger.

The presenter, who last night crowned Sam Bailey as the 2013 winner, has revealed that the gang get together every Sunday night after the show has finished to go out for dinner.

Dermot, 40, said: ‘Me and Nicole came up with the idea and then Gary got involved because he’s a big foodie. Everyone brings their partners, it’s terrific – and quite surreal.’

And it seems that his wife Dee also finds the whole thing quite bizarre. ‘Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne, Gary Barlow and Nicole Scherzinger all sang happy birthday to my wife Dee the other week. She woke up on the Monday and went: ‘Well that was odd!,” he added.

Can we join in next time?
