Frankie Cocozza confirmed to take part in Celebrity Big Brother

'X Factor' evictee has apparently promised "to shag someone" in the house

Frankie Cocozza has been confirmed to take part in next month’s Celebrity Big Brother.

The singer, who was thrown off the X Factor last month after he allegedly boasted about taking cocaine in front of the show’s producers, will take part in the reality show when it begins next month.

According to a report in The Sun, Cocozza will pocket a £30,000 fee for his appearance on the reality show and has apparently told producers: “I will shag someone in the house.”

A source told the tabloid of Cocozza’s booking: “He’s not exactly a Hollywood star but everyone knows who he is and he’s bound to cause some mayhem in the house. If nothing else he’ll be good value.”

Other celebrities tipped to appear alongside Cocozza next year include Loose Women panelist Denise Welch, actress Natalie Cassidy and Ryan Giggs’ sister-in-law Natasha Giggs.
