X Factor Frankie: My heartbreak
X Factor lothario Frankie Cocozza has claimed he had his heart broken by his first love.
The 18-year-old contestant - who has the names of some of his apparent conquests tattooed on his bottom - told The Sun he acted like such a ladies man to forget his heartbreak.
Frankie said: "I've had one serious relationship. It was on and off for the last three years at school. Even when we weren't together everyone knew we still liked each other.
"She broke my heart, that's why I'm a t***. I'm not going to say her name. It's so awkward. She didn't cheat on me but she went off with someone else afterwards and it was someone I'd never expected. That's all I'm saying.
"Since then I've never wanted to be in a relationship again. I probably will do at some point but not now.
"It was the worst six months of my life. It was vile, horrible. I would cry about her when I was drunk. I got over it in time and then I went to Malia and started s***ging."
The aspiring singer - who earlier this week was pictured leaving a nightclub with blonde twins on his arm, also confessed he had never taken a girl on a date.
"I'm not romantic. The most romantic thing I've ever done was take a girl to a Beyonce gig. "The cheesiest line I use is, 'Let's get you home'. Most girls just laugh when I say that - that's probably why it works."
