Frankie Cocozza has revealed how he almost quit E4's Celebs Go Dating.

The E4 dating series' third run continues this evening and former X Factor star Frankie is on the show searching for love.

But he confessed to getting cold feet half-way through filming.

“I was on the train on the way up there and thought ‘f*** this I’m getting off’. F*** the money, see ya later," Frankie admitted. “But I really started to enjoy it and I thought ‘I’m getting into the swing of it’.

“Now it’s ending I’m like b*****ks I don’t want this to end."


Former X Factor and Celebrity Big Brother contestant Frankie admitted he dealt with his nerves by drinking.

“I got slaughtered –for the first mixer. I was battered," he told The Sun newspaper. “At the hotel before I had two beers - that was at 2pm.

“By the time 6pm came around I was absolutely hammered but I needed to do that I think because it would’ve been carnage.

“I would’ve walked in and wouldn’t have spoken to anyone. But I could’ve stayed a bit more sober.”

In tonight's show, it's Frankie's first mixer having only joined the agency this week.

Insisting he's not the 'bad boy' reality telly has made him out to be, Frankie is keen to prove he's boyfriend material.

But the singer is nervous at the thought of entering a room filled with sexy single girls. Will anyone catch his eye?

Other celebs taking part in Celebs Go Dating's third season include TOWIE's Bobby Norris, Model Calum Best and TOWIE's James 'Arg' Argent.

As for the girls, reality star Charlotte Dawson, TV presenter Sarah-Jane Crawford and Made In Chelsea's Georgia Toffolo have all also been confirmed for the show.

Rumour has it that Frankie and Charlotte ended up getting together despite the show aiming to match the celebs with members of the public.

She teased recently: "Well obviously we are very alike, personality wise. Yeah obviously he's caught my eye as a friend, we're quite good friends, and you'll just have to wait and see."

Celebs Go Dating airs week nights at 10PM on E4.
