Friedman 'relief' at Wagner exit

The X Factor's Brian Friedman has spoken of his relief that the "elephant in the room", Wagner, has been voted off the show.

The choreographer told of his difficulty in coming up with routines for the controversial contestant.

He said: "He is not a great singer and he doesn't do well with staging, so it always came down to me and I really felt the pressure to make it amazing.

"It is definitely a weight off my shoulders. He was like a big grey elephant in the room. But I had no issues with him other than he has no talent.

"I am proud of the work I did with him, it was always spectacular. There were a couple of weeks where strange things happened on stage that I had no control over. Typical Louis wanted dancing skeletons and cats in Halloween week when I wanted something much cooler."

Speaking at the launch of Sex And The City 2 on DVD, Friedman also revealed he thinks Cher Lloyd can't win the competition.

He said: "I don't think Cher will get though. She is not the warmest of them all and every show she gets booed.

"If only three go through next week I see it being Matt, Rebecca and One Direction. It would be really amazing to show a group could do it."

:: Sex And The City 2 is out now on Blu-ray Triple Play (Blu-ray, DVD & Digital Copy) and DVD.
