Online campaign wants Wagner to win X Factor

AN online campaign has been launched which seeks to ensure eccentric Brazilian singer Wagner Carrilho will win the X Factor.

Last year, X Factor winner Joe McElderry lost the battle for the Christmas Number One when US rockers Rage Against The Machine got to the top following a Facebook campaign.

And now former PE teacher Wagner, 54, is being given a boost thanks to a similar internet campaign.

Wagner performed a medley of Spice Up Your Life and Living La Vida Loca on Saturday’s show but got through despite being made a favourite by bookies to go.
