Frankie Cocozza has blasted 'X Factor' judge as a "t**t" and a "p***k"
Frankie Cocozza has branded Louis Walsh a "t**t".
The former 'X Factor' wannabe - who was booted out of the show in 2011 for taking cocaine - claims the veteran judge had a vendetta against him and refused to talk to him when the cameras weren't rolling.
He said: "I didn't like Louis Walsh. He's a t**t. He didn't like me but I don't know why. When we were in the corridor he'd just turn his back on me and on screen, he'd slag me of. I was a Louis fan before the show, so it was pretty disappointing."
When asked what he'd say if he saw Louis, 61, again, the 20-year-old star said: "You're a p***k!"
While he's not keen on the Irish 'X Factor' judge, Frankie is still a fan of his former mentor, Gary Barlow, 42, but admits they no longer speak.
He added to Now magazine: "He was so cool but he knew 'The X Factor' were playing on the 'Oh, we can't control Frankie' thing. We spoke about it. He's a nice geezer. We kept in touch for a bit afterwards but then we lost touch."
