This year, during the early auditions, I managed to grab Dermot to ask if the dance would indeed be returning. He said I think more about his dancing than he does (definitely) and said he’d have to ask Simon Cowell.
So, while we wait (and hope, hope, hope), here’s a celebration of some of Dermot’s best moves to get us in the mood…
Dermot Shuffle megamix
He bops, he slides, he shuffles, he grooves… he’s a one man dancing machine!
Who can forget when Dermot went all professional and danced with Strictly judge Darcey Bussell at the NTAs? Do forget the trip at the end, though.
Moves like Jagger
From celebrity cameos to a stop in at Coronation Street’s Rovers Return, Dermot’s dances went epic.
