Olly Murs

Xtra Factor co-host Olly Murs was left shocked by the "incredible" news that Frankie Cocozza had been kicked out of the competition yesterday... after finding out live on air! The former finalist was chatting to Radio Aire when the news broke online...

“Oh my God, this is incredible," Olly said when finding out the news.

But out of the loop Olly had no clue about why the teenager was given the axe.

“I don’t know what the golden rule is," he explained. “The rules are – there’s lots of rules on the show.

“Obviously you can’t speak to the press directly without going through people. You can’t sign a record deal with anyone else.”

“It’s very exciting isn’t it? Like I say, it’s a shock to me, I don’ know what’s going on but hey, I’m sure I’ll find out.”
