Frankie Cocozza is from Brighton and was born to an English mother and a father of Italian descent. He attended Longhill High School. During the first live show, he sang "The A Team" and was safe. The second week of live shows, he sang "The Scientist" and was in the bottom two and had to perform against Nu Vibe in the final showdown, when he sang "Red". Barlow, Rowland and Walsh all voted in his favour, saving him from elimination.
