Wagner Carrilho's benefit payout check




By TOM NEWTON DUNN

Published: Today

WELFARE boss Iain Duncan Smith says X Factor weirdo Wagner must "explain himself" over his sick benefit payouts.

He cast more doubt over the loser's right to incapacity benefit after The Sun told how he was being probed by inspectors. The barking Brazilian, 54, took handouts for 18 months, claiming he was suffering from a frozen shoulder.

Iain Duncan Smith ... 'explain'

IDS - the Work and Pensions Secretary - said: "One of the people on his case noticed he was leaping in the air with his arms above him when I am told that he had a frozen shoulder.

"Frozen shoulders tend to mean that you can't have your arm in the air - it's impossible. He will be asked to explain why he was on benefits in the first place."

IDS said Wagner's case was an example of how abuse of the £91.40-a-week benefit had mushroomed. He added: "It illustrates the biggest problem we have."

Critics say that up to 400,000 of the 3.2 million collecting the handout may not need it.
