Dermot O'Leary 'not worried' by 'The Voice'

Wednesday March 28, 2012

X Factor host Dermot O'Leary has admitted he is a fan of The Voice, but insisted he's not worried about the competition.

The presenter recorded both the BBC One singing show and ITV1's Britain's Got Talent when the two programmes kicked off their new series.

Speaking after the opening night of stage show The King's Speech, Dermot said:

"I watched The Voice first out of curiosity and I really enjoyed it. I thought the judges were great. Tom Jones was a brilliant judge especially, and Jessie J as well.

"And I think it's good for us to have competition."

He said he is "not that worried" about The Voice stealing X Factor's thunder, but added:

"We can't sit on our laurels. We've got to work hard.

"Last year we had the challenge of American X Factor and we met that head on and this year we've got The Voice. You don't want to be arrogant or complacent."
