“[Eric] does enjoy coming down to auditions,” the proud dad said. “The first time I brought him to Britain’s Got Talent he thought it was scary because of the big red Xs, but then after a few months I said, ‘What does Daddy do when he goes to work?’ and he said I pressed buttons – it’s a little more than that!”
“Now, he understands the show so I watch him and I’m like, ‘Eric do you like it? Don’t you like it?’
“He’s got a really good eye and ear for it, so yes, he’s going to be doing this one day.”
In other words, we might expect Eric to make even more TV appearances in coming years. Who knows, maybe in the future he’ll be wearing v-neck shirts and declaring “I didn’t like it, I LOVED it” too.
The X Factor continues 8.35pm Saturday (September 22)
