Frankie Cocozza went out on an all-night booze bender after learning he had been axed from 'The X Factor' tour
Frankie Cocozza has been axed from 'The X Factor' tour.
The 18-year-old wannabe rocker - who was sensationally forced to leave the ITV1 show after being caught bragging about taking cocaine - went on a massive booze bender after being ditched from a headline slot on the lucrative show by series bosses amid fears over his controversial image.
A show insider told the Daily Star newspaper: "There is no doubt Frankie would have been great on the live tour but the gigs do attract young and impressionable fans.
"It would have been wrong to have let him tour."
After hearing the news, Frankie enjoyed a wild night of partying at London's Aura club on Tuesday (15.11.11) where he downed two £400 Belvedere Vodka magnums and £200 worth of Jack Daniels with friends before partying in a room with model Biannca Lake.
A friend said: "Frankie let himself down again."
Another source added to The Sun newspaper: "Frankie loves the drink and the girls. Frankie was told there may still be options for him but he'd have to keep his nose clean. But he couldn't even stay in one night."
This year's 'X Factor' live tour will now feature nine acts instead of the usual eight with The Risk, Johnny Robinson, Kitty Brucknell, Marcus Collins, Craig Colton, Misha B, Janet Devlin, Amelia Lily and Little Mix all confirmed to perform.
