UPDATE: confirmed…


X Factor tearaway Frankie Cocozza has been axed from this year’s show, according to tabloid reports. 

A show source told the Sun newspaper: “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.”
