Former X Factor Star Wagner Paid £20 to Sing The Soldiers’ Song on Facebook

Former X Factor Star Wagner Paid £20 to Sing The Soldiers’ Song on Facebook

He’s been up to his old tricks again.

Former X Factor star Wagner Carrilho has posted a video on his verified Facebook page singing The Soldiers’ Song.

The reality TV star, 58, takes requests from fans for a small fee, thought to be £20, and in return sings them a song in a short clip, or sends them his best wishes.

Wagner uploaded his latest effort on Sunday, wishing someone happy birthday before belting out the Republic of Ireland national anthem, in one of the most bizarre 40 seconds you’re likely to experience in a while.

The song, which is seen as controversial by some due to the alleged anti-British sentiments throughout, is linked to Celtic and their fans, due to their Irish background and heritage.

It’s not the first time Wagner has unwittingly entered Old Firm politics, after singing ‘The Billy Boys’ in September and a pro-IRA chant in October, as we told you at the time.

Perhaps it’s time someone started vetting his inbox.
