Rylan Clark-Neal would love to present 'The X Factor', the show where he found fame in 2012

Rylan Clark-Neal wants to host 'The X Factor'.

The 27-year-old singer-turned-presenter is keen to take the helm of the ITV show where he found fame, admitting it would be his "ultimate dream".

He said: "My ultimate dream would be to present 'The X Factor' - I only left three years ago and to go from contestant to presenting would be a tick in my box."

And Rylan - who is nominated at tonight's (20.01.16) National Television Awards for Best TV Presenter against the likes of Ant & Dec, Graham Norton and Mel & Sue - is still shocked he beat former 'X Factor' host Dermot O'Leary to a nomination.

He added: "It's ridiculous to beat Dermot, he's one of the best presenters in this country.

"Looking at the list, I'm more shocked than anyone. I've been planning my gracious loser face - I've got more chance of winning the lottery than beating Ant and Dec."

Meanwhile, Rylan insisted a chance at presenting 'The X Factor' may not be possible as he has no plans to leave 'Big Brother'.

He told The Sun newspaper: "I've no intention of leaving 'Big Brother' any time soon and normally the 'X Factor' auditions clash with the summer 'Big Brother'.

"This season of 'Celebrity Big Brother' has already blown up. It's such a normal job for me but it never ceases to amaze me. It's been an explosive series."
