Chilled: Dermot on RE:COVERED

Hobbies?
Loves playing rugby or American football.

But he loves to watch hurling - quite a dangerous Gaelic game which is a cross between hockey and lacrosse - and his dad used to play it.

He's an Arsenal and Celtic supporter. Plus he likes his rugby and supports London Irish.

But he is also a big fan of the Miami Dolphins American Football team.

Oh, and he has a big interest in making programmes too. In 2001, he set up his own TV programme-making company called Murfia.

What's he presented before?

  • He started out as a DJ on BBC Radio Essex then worked as a TV runner - basically someone who does all the fetching for TV people!
  • He moved into TV when he became the guy who gets the audience all excited on a show called Light Lunch which was hosted by Mel (from Celebrity Big Brother 2003!) and Sue
  • Moved on to be T4's presenter
  • He's also done Dermot's Sporting Buddies in which he spends a day with showbiz pals like Davina McCall and ends the day with some sporting event.

    Dermot with the SAS!
    Hard man: Dermot with the SAS!

  • SAS: Are you tough enough? Dermot was the brave host of the show in which normal people go through tough SAS training
  • RE:COVERED: This is a music show in which top bands play covers of their fave tracks by other bands.

Does he have a girlfriend?
He keeps his private life VERY private. We do know he had his heart broken very badly last year - awwww.
