Bookmakers are starting to become seriously concerned about the possibility that Wagner could win the X Factor show this year.
TV bosses are also concerned that support for Wagner seems to be increasing each week and momentum behind the 54 year old Brazilian is on the increase .
Steve Freeth spokesman for Bet365 a large online bookie explained “We’ve laid Wagner from all rates down to 13/2 from 250/1 so understandably we’re a little bit nervous with him still being in the competition.”
Whilst Wagner clearly has very little talent and is completely tone deaf Freeth admitted “He may get a few boos from the live studio audience, but he’s obviously got a huge fanbase away from the set and punters just can’t get enough of him.”
William Hill have also seen money for Wagner to win X Factor and their spokesman Joe Crilly confirmed :”Punters have now changed tack and are backing him to emerge victorious. He is proving one of the most popular contestants this year and we could be faced with a major financial headache should he win.”
The theme of this week’s show is rock music and it is rumoured that Wagner is to perform “Creep” by Radiohead .
This could be the defining moment .
