Jones 'in the mix' for US X Factor

Steve Jones says he is still in the running for the plum job of hosting the US version of The X Factor.

Recent reports suggested that pop star Enrique Iglesias will present the hotly-anticipated TV show, with former Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger.

But Welsh hunk Steve told Metro that he was "still in the mix apparently" adding: "From the meetings I've had about it, I'm still there."

X Factor host Dermot O'Leary recently said he was disappointed not to have landed the US gig.

But ladies' man Steve, 34, said: "I know for a fact Dermot wasn't the only British presenter in the mix."

He said of the thought of presenting next to Nicole: "She's a great lady and she'll do a fantastic job."
