X Factor: Danny Dyer think’s Wagner is a ‘lunatic!’
Danny Dyer has admitted that he thinks X Factor contestant Wagner Carillho is a proper ‘nutter.’
The British actor was chatting on The Xtra Factor about the Brazilian singer, who has become a shock favourite to win the show in two weeks time, when he confessed that he thinks he is a real ‘lunatic.’
Danny told Konnie Huq:
I’ve met Wagner and he is a lunatic, he’s a nutter mate. There is something just not right, the look in his eyes and I think respect to him, he gets up there and takes a lot of flak and that takes a lot.
Harry Potter star Rupert Grint admitted that Wagner is one of his favourite singers left on the ITV show. He said:
I like Wagner, I really do. He’s not everyone’s favourite but I don’t think the show would be the same without him. I loved him tonight, Creep, the lyrics were perfect!
Funnyman James Corden also spoke out in defence of Carillho, saying that he hasn’t enjoyed watching him be criticised each week. He explained:
If there is one thing that I’ve dislike over the series, its been the treatment of Wagner. Tonight was the first night he could do what he wanted. I felt like he hasn’t chosen to dance around with these songs, he’s forced to do that and then the judges go “What was that?” He’s an older man and the least you can do is get his name right.
