Which ‘Golden Rule’ Did Frankie Cocozza Break To Get X Factor Chop?

by | 8th, November 2011

YOU’LL probably know by now that Frankie Cocozza has been kicked off The X Factor. Who are you people going to hate on a Saturday night now? Yourselves?

A show source said to The Sun:

“Frankie is devastated but he has broken a golden rule so producers had no option but to axe him. He had an extra boost from being kept in at the weekend when he thought he was going to go. But now his dream is officially over and he only has himself to blame.”

A golden rule has been broken, eh? What might that mean? Well, there’s a myriad of reasons that he could get kicked off a primetime ITV show. You’d think his terrible singing and gigantic mass of plague hair would be reason enough, but no.

It has to be something else. Like what?

1. Partying to hardy

The production team are just too tired of fighting fires everytime Frankie goes out on the lash. Sure, he’s great for column inches, but his booze ‘n’ fags diet isn’t exactly as wholesome (ha!) as The X Factor would like. Is this likely as Cocozza is a one-man publicity machine for the show?

2. Swearing

Ofcom have the hump with the show after Cocozza yelled ‘fucking ‘ave it!’ before the watershed. This seems a bit of a trite reason to send a contestant packing on the show.

3. Drugs

The biggest mutterings say that Cocozza got caught doing drugs and THAT JUST WON’T DO, which means we can all look forward to ‘Frank E Cokeuser‘ jokes from the tabloids. This certainly seems more likely.

4. Sponsor Upset

Has Frankie actually believed this cod-indie cred and told the show he won’t ‘sell-out’ and do something with a sponsor? Again, this seems likely as the show is all about sponsorship. You’ve seen that terrible M&S commercial right?

Either way, Frankie is out, and he says:

“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.”

And with that the last novelty act has gone.
