The X Factor host Dermot O'Leary shares a rare ADORABLE picture of his parents as they prepare to leave his childhood home

The X Factor host shared the picture of his parents outside his childhood home on Wednesday, along with an emotional and amusing caption.

Dermot explained that his parents were moving to Wexford, Ireland, and reflected on his family's time in England over the years.

The star began by saying: "Squeezed in a last visit and supper to O'Leary HQ before Mam and Dad take the trip back to Wexford.

"They've loved it here. Since they've moved in 68 the people have been nothing but kind, welcoming and generous to them in a time when it wasn't easy to be Irish in Britain."

He continued, saying his parents were "brave" for packing up their lives and moving to somewhere where they knew no one.

However, in the same post, the TV personality also joked about his achievements in comparison to his sisters.


He cheekily wrote: "Your daughter has a PHD, your son... well he talks out loud for a living, but let's gloss over that."

Dermot downplayed his achievements, poking fun at himself about his successful career hosting shows including Big Brother and Dancing With The Stars.

Highlighting how special parents – including his – are, the star said: "So thanks Maria and Sean, for being brave enough to pack up as kids, leave your homes, loved ones and move somewhere no one knows you. Here's to all our parents, and what they do for us."
