Matt Cardle and Wagner were involved in furious bust-up last night (19.11.10).
The Essex lad lost his temper with the Brazilian singer and confronted him for allegedly bad-mouthing the other 'X Factor' contestants.
Matt reportedly said: "You spiteful t**t. You're a joke."
A stunned Wagner - who is a karate expert - responded by saying: "Who the hell do you think you are? The paparazzi?"
The bust-up happened at the Fountain studios in Wembley, north west London, and producers quickly moved in to pull the pair apart.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "Matt was livid. He just flipped. We genuinely thought Wagner might give him a hiding."
During the row Matt, 27, also branded Wagner a "bully" and rubbished the 54-year-old Brazilian's claims he had to be moved from the contestants house to a Holiday Inn hotel this week because the other hopefuls were ganging up on him.
Matt raged: "Who do you think you are calling us bullies? You're the bully!
"No one likes you and you're a pain the a**e. That's why you've been booted out of the house. We don't you around. As far as I'm concerned you can f**k off and never speak to me again."
Meanwhile, Wagner has claimed he had to get out of the "God-forsaken house" because it was like a prison.
The singer - who is mentored by Louis Walsh - slammed the other contestants whilst having a drink at the bar of the hotel where he is staying.
He is quoted by the Daily Mirror newspaper as saying: "I had to get out of that God-forsaken house, it was a nightmare. I couldn't stand to live with a single one of them for another second, they were all absolutely impossible to get on with. The noise was constant, I get no peace and privacy. I hated every minute.
He also attacked judge Cheryl Cole branding her a "just a girl from a council estate who got lucky when somebody gave her a job in showbiz".
Tensions are set to be running high during the live show tonight (20.11.10) when the contestants attempt to impress with their renditions of The Beatles' most famous songs.
