Celebrity Big Brother runner up Frankie Cocozza has said he regrets agreeing to be photographed kissing Geordie Shore's Holly Hagan for money.

Speaking to the Daily Star Sunday, Frankie revealed he was given £1,000 for the set-up photographs by the Newcastle star's management.

“Holly certainly got her money’s worth – in publicity and apparently in the bedroom too," a source told the newspaper.

Speaking to the tabloid himself, Frankie said he regretted taking the money.

“I got a grand off Holly’s agent for kissing her in the street. They gave me the money that night for doing it. I just did it because I was pissed, to be honest," he said.

He added: “The next day I regretted doing it.

“I know a lot of celebs set up pap shots on a regular basis and make money from it but I’m not normally into that. I just did it the once.”

Frankie, who was booted out of The X Factor last November, recently told TellyMix had he was hoping to put his drinking days behind him and focus on a career in music.
