X Factor 2011: Frankie Cocozza says he "thrives" on boos

Frankie Cocozza

X Factor wannabe Frnakie Cocozza has said that he thrives on boos from the audience, following the reaction to be him being saved on Sunday night. As host Dermot O'Leary revealed the teenager as safe, the show's audience couldn't help but show their disappointment.

And we don't blame them one bit.

He told the Irish Mirror: "I expected to be in the bottom two on Sunday but I’m delighted that I wasn’t.

“The booing from the audience wasn’t nice but you know what, I thrive on that so bring it on."

Yesterday the 18-year-old took to Twitter to hit out at the "mugs" and "haters" who had booed him on the show.
