X Factor 2012: Frankie Cocozza backs Kye Sones to win

Kye Sones (X Factor 2012)

Former X Factor bad boy Frankie Cocozza has backed Kye Sones to win the show this year.

Speaking to Reveal magazine, Frankie said that Kye had a "great voice" and was "genuinely nice".

He said: "He's my favourite, I love the fact that he's a chimney sweep, it makes him cool as f**k and I think he'll do really well.

"He's got a great voice, and seems genuinely nice too."

And Frankie joked: "I reckon there will be a Gary and Kye love-in going on, which doesn't make me too jealous. I've had my time with Gary."

However the teenage performer didn't have as many nice words to use to describe his feelings for Rylan Clark.

"I don't want to be nasty to the geezer, but he's not the best singer," Frankie said. "I feel like Jake Quickenden should have go through instead of Rylan, but novelty acts help the ratings."

The X Factor 2012 continues this Saturday night on ITV1, with the results show following on Sunday night with performances from Taylor Swift and Rebecca Ferguson.
