X Factor finalist Frankie Cocozza has been aXed

Cocky Frankie Cocozza now has the Ex Factor after being kicked off show.

The reason is not yet known, but sources are citing that he broke a ‘golden rule’ and there was no choice but to boot him out of the competition.

It’s been no secret that the 18-year-old has angered ITV bosses with his partying and nights out on the London party scene.

Frankie is said to be devastated over the sacking, but had previously threatened to quit the talent contest.

Following the backlash of hate from fans of the show and abuse on Twitter, he told mentor Gary Barlow that he’d walk should he be in last Sunday’s bottom two.

But could this just be a cheap ploy by X factor supremos to ‘shake’ this series up, as its viewing figures seem to be going down faster than a lead balloon?

What do you think? Is this just a scam to pull the viewers in? Were you a Frankie fan? Who do you want to win this year’s crown?
