Simon Cowell has hit back at Dermot O'Leary's comments about X Factor!

The Irish presenter fronted the show for 8 years before leaving the role to be replaced by Olly Murs and Caroline Flack!

Dermot made the comments in an interview with Radio Times... and went onto have digs at the talent show whilst hosting the NTA's last week.

He admitted that he feels X Factor should take a break and claimed that rival show 'Strictly' is his 'new favourite show'!

In true Simon Cowell style, he has not taken this lying down!

Speaking at the Britain's Got Talent auditions, Simon revealed that he didn't see the funny side to Dermot's comments!

"You say these things, trying to be a bit funny on the night, and then you go off and think ‘I wish I didn't say that'.

Ouch! 

We hope Dermot doesn't run into Mr Cowell anytime soon!
