The 18-year-old is said to have told productions staff he snorted coke during an all-night bender after his X Factor performance on Saturday evening.

On Sunday’s X Factor, Cocozza admitted he had only slept for 30 minutes.

No official announcement has yet made but later today X Factor officials are expected to give their version of why Cocozza was kicked off the show.

According to production staff, Frankie was “incredibly naïve” and was heard showing off about a night spent snorting cocaine and having sex with two blonde fans.

Staff were said to be shocked he was talking so openly and felt compelled to grass him up to their superiors.

On Monday, Cocozza was told by bosses that he had broken one of the X Factor’s ‘golden rules’ and would no longer be allowed to continue in the competition.

The Brighton teenager is said to be devastated.

“I’m an idiot. What was I thinking?” he told a friend, The Sun is reporting.

“People seemed to like me, despite the fact I can’t sing and now I’ve blown it. I’ll regret this the rest of my life.”

He said in a statement: “My life during the show has gone out of control and my behaviour off-stage over-stepped the rules of the competition. I no longer deserve my place in the show, so I am leaving.”

The incident was trending on Twitter this morning with Cocozza the butt of comments such as:

“When Gary Barlow said Frankie Cokeupthenozza was struggling with his lines, I had no idea that’s what he meant…”

“Leave Frankie Cokeupthenozza alone… He just needs to snort his life out.”

“I wonder if frankie cokeupthenozza nose what he’s doing is dangerous.”

“I was gonna tell you a joke about Frankie Cokeupthenozza. But it snort very funny.”

“Anyone wanting to make a Frankie Cokeupthenozza joke, please, form a line, its what he’d want.”

“At least Frankie Cokeupthenozza left the #XFactor on a high.”
