Talking to DS at the Elle Style Awards last night, he said it would be fun to have the former contestant around.
Dermot told us he was still recovering from hosting the BAFTAs red carpet the previous night, where he was interviewing A-list names from Bradley Cooper to Helen Mirren.
He said of his role at the prestigious awards do: "You don't get time to be starstruck, everything happens so quickly. It's only after that you realise what's happened and go, 'Blimey that was intense!' It's a weird night - you sit down having dinner and Henry Cavill walks past!"
