Plus, Take Me Out “gigolo” Aaron Withers in Big Brother bid, and first pic of Amanda Holden’s baby girl
We’ll start our look at today’s reality TV news with former X Factor finalist and CBB housemate, Frankie Cocozza, who has been warned that his tendency to binge drink could be putting his life in danger.
Speaking to the Daily Star, Frankie recently revealed that he often drink’s a week’s worth of booze in just one night, which has led to a healthcare expert warning, “He could be dead by age 25.”
19 year old Frankie said, “I drink too much. I’m on it all the time. I don’t want to think about how much I knock back every night.
“I don’t understand those units – 21 units a week? F***, I drink that ev- ery f****** night. Easy.”
The paper adds, “NHS guidelines have changed to recommend a man drinks no more than three to four units of alcohol a day – the equivalent of a pint and a half.”
And over the weekend, after two nights of partying, Frankie tweeted,“I thought I knew how to pa ty but my brothers are something else #MASSIVENIGHT”.
His friend, Ross Gibbons, who was out with him, replied, “Never seen so much free drink in my life.”
Frankie added, “I can’t say no to free drink. I know I should.”
Dr Mike Knapton, of the British Heart Foundation, warned of the dangers of such heavy drinking at the recent launch of the Change4Life alcohol awareness campaign.
He said, “An estimated 10million Brits drink more than the recommended limits for alcohol, which puts one in five of us at increased risk of heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure and weight gain.”
Let’s hope Frankie takes note and isn’t the next young person who dies of excess!
In other news, Aaron Withers, who was exposed as a “gigolo” after appearing on dating show Take Me Out, has revealed that he’s applied to go into the Big Brother house this summer.
And like Frankie Cocozza, he reckons a stint in the house will prove to people that he’s not “a bad person”.
Of the reaction of Take Me Out bosses – and the viewing public – to the reports that he was a male escort, Aaron told the Star, “I felt I got a rough ride on ITV and was treated badly.”
O the puns that I could make out of that sentence…
Anywho, moving on, and BGT judge Amanda Holden has proudly shown off her new baby Hollie to the media.
As you may be aware, both Amanda and Hollie nearly died as complications during the baby’s birth put them both at risk. However, just two weeks after the trauma, Amanda is ready to get back to work at this year’s Britain’s Got Talent auditions.
Apparently, Amanda intends to return to BGT this weekend, and fans are hoping she might bring little Hollie with her to the show’s auditions in Edinburgh.
