Energetic Wagner receives incapacity benefits
Thursday 18 November 2010
Former PE teacher, Wagner Fiuza-Carrilho, aged 54, has been living off the state handout of £91.40 since last year after injuring his shoulder.
However, Wagner’s not one known for shying away from dance moves during live performances, so, of course, it has been questioned as to whether he really should be receiving incapacity benefits.
To make matters worse, Wagner only went and rocked up at Nuffield Health and Fitness centre in Covent Garden yesterday morning for a workout.
A spokesperson for the X Factor stated: "We told him to talk to the benefits office.
"In terms of the show, clearly he was deemed physically fit to do the show because they all see the doctor.
"We wouldn’t put him on the show if we didn’t think he was fit enough’.
Oops, look’s like Wagner’s busted…
X Factor contestant Matt Cardle has also blasted words of anger at the Brazilian: "The whole Wagner thing, enough is enough. The joke is over now and people be voting for the signers.
"People wouldn’t mind leaving the competition less if Wagner wasn’t still in it."
