Voice of Ireland co-host Eoghan McDermott
has told how he was given tips on hugging by X Factor hunk Dermot O’Leary.
And the Dubliner reckons the advice has left him well-prepared for the live shows, which start on Sunday.
(28), a presenter on London radio station XFM
, will be waiting in the wings to console or congratulate finalists as he gets the post- performance analysis underway.
Asked how he will handle contestants crying on his shoulder, Eoghan revealed: “I got a tutorial from one of the greats. Dermot O’Leary came on my show a while back and gave me a tutorial in good hug-giving. So I’ve learned from the master.”
