Frankie Cocozza kicked out of The X Factor

It’s official: Frankie Cocozza has been kicked off The X Factor UK for breaking the rules!

Read the announcement:

From ITV:

Moments ago, the singer told The X Factor…

“I’d like to apologise to Gary, my fellow contestants and everyone who has voted for me, but, as of today, I will no longer be in The X Factor. My life during the show has gone out of control and my behaviour off stage has over-stepped the rules of the competition. I no longer deserve my place in the show, so I am therefore leaving. I would like to thank everyone who has supported me.”

An X Factor spokesperson has also given us this statement…

“Frankie is leaving the show today after breaking competition rules. He is going to take some time out before continuing his career as a singer. We wish him all the best for his future.”

We’ll make an announcement about Saturday’s show tomorrow.

Smart move. That show is an absolute train wreck.

He may do quite well.

I kinda liked watching him on the show, lol, so I'm disappointed. But I guess if I followed what goes on behind the scenes and his behavior backstage, maybe I'd be glad because it seems he is out of control from the little I hear.

If they kicked hm out because of drug use... I don't buy it... Whatever the reason is

Because I honestly think he's been using long before this week (DUH)

At least now the everyone in the Top 6 deserves to win, good riddance TBH

Now there are more live shows than contestants... Will they have a wild card?

Finally. Altho, he really should have been VOTED off, but I'll take what I can get. Now Johnny should be brought back since he was the next one off.

Frankie was TERRIBLE!

Does anyone else think that this is staged because the producers actually thought he had a chance of winning? o.O

I was just thinking about it last night and I was like, "My gawd....he hasn't been the bottom at all and there's only 6 contestants left so what if he actually has a decent chance of winning? How embarrassing would that be for the show?"

This is kinda scary.
But good thing he's off the show now :]

Couldn't have happened to a more worthy person ... one who couldn't sing a lick and whose only place in the competition was to create publicity for the show and a moronic following of young girls.

"Frankie Cocozza has been axed from The X Factor after claims he 'boasted about taking cocaine'. The cocky wannabe rockstar was ordered to leave the house this morning after he had 'broken a golden rule', which it soon emerged was related to drug use."

What did he do? This is terrible. I wanted to see what he came up with each week. People were voting for him.

He ain't poor, to me; any drug user is a wasted human being. Shouldn't they spend time to do anything else that helps the actual poor people rather than doing drug? What a wasted person.

Obviously you haven't been paying attention! Frankie was just in the bottom two (episode 15), and should have been several additional times.
