X Factor Reject Wagner To Release "Tell All" Book?
Publishers are said to be fighting over who gets Carrilho's story...
Axed Wagner Carrilhois reportedly at the centre of a bidding war between publishers to land the outspoken Brazilian for a "tell-all" book deal.
Meanwhile, The Mirror has claimed that the crooner was kept in the competition for so long after hoaxers posted his voting number on Gumtree.
According to the newspaper, unsuspecting shoppers who thought they were phoning people on the site to make inquiries about various items for sale, instead voted for Wagner after seeing his number on the classified website.
A show source claimed: “It just goes to show how pervasive and damaging this campaign to keep him in became.”
ITV bosses are said to be "looking into" the Gumtree scam, with a spokesperson for the website stating: "We take false advertising very seriously and we have blocked these users from our site. These ads were removed as soon as we were alerted to them.”
