Campaign for Wagner to win X Factor

X Factor detractors are hoping to scupper the hit ITV show with a campaign to get eccentric singer Wagner Carrilho to win.

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.

This year, Brazilian singer and former PE teacher Wagner, 54, is being given a boost thanks to an X Factor protest internet campaign.

Thanxx wrote on the site: "If you just fancy a really crazy Xmas number 1 this year... vote Wagner!!! If you despise all what the X Factor stands for vote Wagner!

"If you hate Simon Cowell and want to p*** him off vote Wagner! If you want to help run the X factor into the ground and cause mayhem vote Wagner!"

Simon Matthews wrote on the social networking site: "I actually think Wagner would make for a really fun Xmas number 1, gotta be better than the alternative romantic slushy s***e that one of the other contestants would bring out!"

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

His performance on the guilty pleasures themed week left Cheryl Cole cold, with the judge saying: "There was a lot of guilty going on up there. I don't know if there was a lot of pleasure for me."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Aries:

You're highly sentimental. Listening to your favourite music from childhood or flipping through old books may cause laughter to erupt or tears to flow. Don't be ashamed to show your soft side. Although you're extremely headstrong and determined, you also have a heart of gold. Many people don't know this about you, because they're too intimidated to make friends. Fortunately, you have a group of loved ones who know the real you. Arrange to meet with your favourite people for a festive dinner.More
