Matt Cardle has reportedly admitted that Wagner Carrilho might win this year’s X Factor series.
The former painter and decorator, confessed he fears his own chances of winning the ITV1 show have been affected by the popularity of the controversial Brazilian, who he describes as “a joke”.
Matt told The Sun newspaper: “It would be fun to win, I’d like that – but I have a terrible feeling that b****y Wagner is going to win now. It is a joke.”
However, these latest criticisms from Cardle are unlikely to bother Wagner, as he recently laughed that Matt and Louis Tomlinson from One Direction are just making him “more famous” by constantly talking about him.
He said: “I think it’s very sad that instead of talking about themselves, they are making me even more famous. When they came to insult me in person all they wanted was for me to lose my temper. I’ve never done anything to them and I don’t vote for myself.”
