Cheeky Frankie aims for TV fame

One X Factor wannabe has a crack at fame this year by baring his behind for the judges.

Cheeky 18-year-old Frankie from Brighton came back from a working holiday in Malia, Crete, to compete in the ITV1 show.

The teenager told the panel he had the names of seven different girls he met on holiday tattooed on his backside and then bared all to prove it.

At least one judge, former Destiny's Child star Kelly Rowland, was impressed.

She said: "He came on, he showed his ass. You've got to love that."

His performance of Valerie impressed the crowd as well making him an early favourite.

The judges also had to cope with another act that was literally sick with nerves.

But Hong Kong-born Goldie recovered to put on a performance that was half Tina Turner and half lap dancer - and certainly left an impression on Gary Barlow.

He said: "It's been a long time since I had a stranger's leg around my neck. Listen, I loved it, but you're wasting your time with Louis."

The show starts on ITV1 at 8pm on Saturday.
