Interesting fact:

Although Frankie was rumoured to be dating his fellow X-Factor contestant, Amelia Lily, he insists he is single.


Frankie Cocozza was catapulted into the spotlight in 2011 after successfully auditioning for the X-Factor. At his first audition in front of a live audience and panel of judges, Frankie proved his cheeky personality, which ultimately got him through to the live finals of the show and earned him a loyal fan base.

Mentored by Take That’s Gary Barlow, Frankie continued to do well in the show until he sensationally left, a move which he says made him “feel free.” The controversial star hopes he will get a career out of his success so far and is ambitious to become a television presenter: “I’d like to be like George Lamb, he’s cool.”

He is excited about being in the most famous house in Britain and is sure to bring some of his fun-loving personality to this Celebrity Big Brother series.
