Are X Factor Producers Scared of What Wagner Might Say?

Filed under: Wagner Fiuza-Carriho

Normally when a contestant leaves the X Factor they do hundreds of interviews from journalists. Not so with Wagner Fiuza-Carrilho, who has been banned by X Factor producers from all interviews.

The 54 year old didn’t appear alongside Katie Waissel at scheduled interviews because the show’s producers were terrified on what he might say.

A source told the Mirror:

“”Wagner was banned from speaking to the other contestants on Sunday and yesterday they turned down dozens of media requests because they were worried what he might say. He was effectively gagged. No other contestant had this treatment this series.”

Wagner leaves the X Factor

Filed under: Wagner Fiuza-Carriho

After the exit of Katie Waissel, Mary Byrne and Wagner were in the sing-off to stay in the competition. This gave Louis Walsh the unenviable choice between his two acts – and he chose to keep Mary in the competition. This was followed by Dannii, who also chose to vote against Wagner, and Cheryl who also voted against him. As such, Wagner went home.

Wagner was on first, singing Unforgettable. This was followed by Mary singing This Is My Life.

Simon Cowell claimed that people were trying to ‘de-rail the show’ by voting for Wagner, and that the decision to send him home put the show back on track.

Dannii: Cher scares me, and Wagner should be gone

Dannii Minogue is mystified why Wagner is still in the X Factor, she has revealed in an interview with the Mirror.

“I thought Wagner would have gone in the last couple of weeks, but he hasn’t, which is frustrating.” she said.

She has also said that she is scared of giving Cher Lloyd honest comments.

“She’s had a few really good ­ performances but she’s not consistent,” Dannii said. “I was afraid to tell her what I thought in some of her performances. I don’t think she’s trying to be scary. It’s a front because she’s probably more fragile than anybody else.”

Wagner on incapacity benefit?

Filed under: Wagner Fiuza-Carriho

Government officials are investigating the benefit claims of Wagner, after it was revealed that he is claiming incapacity benefit for a ‘frozen shoulder’.

Wagner, who appears on screens every Saturday night appearing to show no signs of any problems, faces prosecution if found guilty.

A Department for Work and Pensions source told the Sun: “The process has been somewhat speeded up [...] Wagner has been very active – and for the entire nation to see that on the telly.”
