Wagner Fiuza-Carrilho and Ann Widdecombe are being tipped to win 'X Factor' and 'Strictly Come Dancing' as show sources revealed they are ''in the first three'' contestants voted through every week
Wagner Fiuza-Carrilho is in the "first three" of 'X Factor' finalists each week.
Leaked figures reportedly show the controversial singer - whose place in the competition has angered viewers and fellow competitors as talented hopefuls such as Aiden Grimshaw and Treyc Cohen have been voted off - performs consistently strongly in the public vote.
Sources also told The Sun newspaper that Ann Widdecombe is performing equally well in the 'Strictly Come Dancing' vote each week.
Although Simon Cowell has threatened to leave Britain if Wagner wins 'X Factor', music mogul Pete Waterman claims the judge is secretly delighted by the 54-year-old Brazilian singer's success.
He said: "Simon is laughing all the way to the bank - it's not about music, it's about TV.
"Wagner is pulling in ratings which are huge. And that's where the money is."
Former MP Ann, 63 - who is 7/1 fourth favourite to win 'Strictly Come Dancing' with her dancing partner Anton Du Beke - has begged fans to ensure she has a place in the final so she can recreate the memorable routine where she danced on wires.
Ann said: "I'd love to be in the final because then I will get the chance to fly again."
