Frankie Cocozza has been reprimanded by 'X Factor' bosses after he went on a massive drinking session and didn't return to the contestants' house until the next morning
Frankie Cocozza has been reprimanded by 'X Factor' bosses after going on a 12-hour booze bender.
The 18-year-old hunk refused to answer calls from producers who were desperate to track him down when he disappeared from the contestants' house, and was called in for a "dressing down" yesterday (02.11.11) when he eventually returned.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "Frankie really angered producers who have the responsibility for looking after the welfare of contestants.
"He was given a severe dressing down and stern words were said. He has been booed by the studio audience the last few weeks and this won't help matters. Viewers could boot him off the show."
Frankie had been drinking with friends at a Wetherspoons pub in Essex before moving on to a house party to play drinking games until 5am - and eventually arriving back at the Hertfordshire house at 7.30am.
The show's resident lothario - who claims to have bedded 69 women - was also spotted taking one of his companions Kelly Freeborn, 19, into a car park, the third girl he has wooed in a parking lot this week alone, although he insists they were just looking for a shop to buy cigarettes.
He said:"We were just walking to a garage to get some cigarettes."
