Wagner asks Mary out

Wagner Fiuza-Carrilho has asked fellow 'X Factor' hopeful Mary Byrne out on a date.

The renowned ladies' man has taken a shine to the supermarket worker during their time on the show and is now keen to take their friendship further.

A source said: "Wagner is single at the moment and looking for love. He and Mary have been getting on well and have started flirting more and more, so he decided to ask her out.

"Mary laughed at first, but secretly she's flattered - and hasn't said no."

While Wagner, 54, is getting on well with 50-year-old Mary he recently had a blazing row with John Adeleye over deodorant.

Scared 'X Factor' hopefuls reportedly had to call security after John accused his Over 28s pal Wagner of trying to damage his vocal chords by spraying his deodorant around the house the contestants share.

A source said: "John insisted the fumes were ruining his vocals cords and was convinced Wagner was doing it deliberately. He snapped and had it out with him. Everyone was really worried as they're quite big blokes to be facing off like that. It woke some people up and some of the younger people like Cher Lloyd were quite scared. Security came in and calmed everything down, but there is some serious bad blood.

"The row between Wagner and John is typical. Wagner is a very big character who loves marching round showing off while John is way more quiet. Two more different people you couldn't hope to meet."
