Former X Factor contestant Frankie Cocozza is to take part in the celebrity edition of Big Brother, according to The Sun.

The 19-year-old, who was kicked off the X Factor following allegations he had taken cocaine during his time on the show, has agreed a £30,000 deal with Big Brother bosses after boasting: “I will shag someone in the house.”

A source told the paper: “He’s not exactly a Hollywood star but everyone knows who he is and he’s bound to cause some mayhem in the house. If nothing else he’ll be good value.”

Other celebrities rumoured to be taking part are Natasha Giggs, former EastEnders actress Natalie Cassidy and Loose Women’s Denise Welch.

Celebrity Big Brother begins on 5th January at 9pm on Channel 5.
