X Factor 2011: Frankie moves to Sophie Habibis after Amelia gets the axe!

Sophie Habibis

It seems as though cheeky Frankie Cocozza has wasted no time in getting over pal Amelia Lily's exit, and has already moved on. According to The Sun the 19-year-old has now been spotted getting close to fellow contestant Sophie Habibis.

It comes less than a week after reports linking him to Amelia Lily, who was eliminated from the show on Sunday.

A source said: "He was seen chatting to her and looked really cosy with her."

Amelia yesterday insisted she and Frankie weren't dating - but just good friends.

She said: “I was expecting all of this and it didn’t bother me in the slightest last week. Me and Frankie were laughing about it. This is what happens. This is what the press is about. They love to make up stories.

“I’m hoping that he goes really far in the competition because I love him to bits. I know all the other girls do as well. I think it’s funny though, these stories in the press they make up.”

But the talented teenager admitted: “Living in that house, I was always with the boys and hardly with the girls. All the boys are lovely as well as Frankie, he’s just a great character and I wish him all the best.”
