Frankie Cocozza - Frankie Cocozza Backed By Gary Barlow To Win Big Brother

Frankie Cocozza is the bookies' favourite to win Celebrity Big Brother tonight and despite having let Gary Barlow down with his wild antics on X Factor, he appears to have regained his former mentor's support. Earlier on today, Barlow Tweeted a message to his disgraced protege that read "Come on FrankieCocozza I hope you win mate." Although some of the housemates have found his behaviour irritating (notably the Playboy twins, one of whom accused him of 'sexual harrassment'), he won many viewers over after 'Bumgate', when he stood up for Denise Welch during a house argument.
Frankie Cocozza was notorious for his partying and raucous ways when he was on X Factor. He was an obvious disappointment to Gary Barlow, who had mentored him and encouraged him. Even Gary Barlow had to admit defeat though, when Frankie was axed from the show after he 'broke the show's rules.' The exact nature of his offence was unclear, though it was rumoured to have been drug-related. Despite mostly living up to his laddish image whilst in the house, Frankie has shown signs of maturity, defending a fellow housemate whom he felt was being unfairly treated (Denise Welch).
According to the Daily Mail, the Playboy twins are expected to be leaving the house first tonight, despite thinking that they have a good chance of winning the show. Frankie is favourite to win, with Gareth Thomas second and Denise Welch no doubt confounding some of her housemates' opinions of her, in third place.
