Shamed 'X Factor' contestant Frankie Cocozza has reportedly signed a deal to take part in 'Celebrity Big Brother'
Frankie Cocozza has signed up for 'Celebrity Big Brother'.
The shamed former 'X Factor' contestant - who was booted off the show for a serious breach of rules - has reportedly agreed a £30,000 deal to appear on the next series of the fly-on-the-wall show after promising to continue with his outrageous antics and womanising ways.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "He's not exactly a Hollywood star nut everyone knows who he is and he's bound to cause some mayhem in the house.
"If nothing else, he'll be good value."
While the line-up for the show - which returns to Channel 5 in early January - has not yet been confirmed, several stars have been linked with an appearance, including troubled Hollywood actress Lindsay Lohan, footballer Ryan Giggs' sister-in-law Natasha Giggs and comedian Freddie Starr.
Speaking about Freddie, who was forced to quit 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!' on medical grounds last month, a source said recently: "The jungle may have been deemed too tough for Freddie but anyone can sit in a house for a couple of weeks.
"Celebrity Big Brother would be right up his street as it wouldn't put massive pressure on his health.
"And it would give him the perfect platform to entertain the nation.
"We believe he would be perfect for the show. He's not afraid to say what he thinks and during his trial he showed that he's a real game player.
"All that makes Freddie exactly the kind of character we want in the house."
