X Factor judge Gary Barlow has defended Frankie Cocozza's continuously sleazy behaviour - saying he's just a teenager! The Take That star had to finally admit last weekend that Frankie had given some "awful" performances on the show, but insisted the youngster has more to give.
Gary said: "He was out earlier in the week on Tuesday and Wednesday and Thursday and Friday but do you know what, he’s a teenager.
"He’s 18 years old and I’m not going to stop him from going out as long as he delivers. He said he just wanted to let off some steam."
She told him: "I loved who you were [at the audition] and there was a sense of innocence about you and I feel it’s gone. You’re rebellious but I don’t think you’re this extreme.”
But Gary insisted: "I think we have to remember that these kids are copped up in a house all week, they are all of a sudden in an environment they aren’t used to being in. I think it’s very stressful actually."
