Frankie Cocozza’s mum paid him to audition for X Factor

Frankie Cocozza has revealed that his mum paid him £50 to audition for the X Factor.

“I got kicked out of college for being a pain and didn’t know what I wanted to do,” Frankie told Now. “So my mum told me to audition for The X Factor.

“I didn’t want to at first, but she said she’d give me £50 if I did.”

It’s no secret that 18-year-old Frankie like the ladies, but are they more important to him than the competition?

“I got lucky the first night 
of boot camp, but it’s not going anywhere.

“If you asked which is more important: finding a woman or getting through to judges’ houses, I’d say it’s 50/50.”
