One lucky X Factor reject act will be thrust back into the limelight tonight after winning a public vote that will raise money for wounded soldiers. James Michael, Amelia Lily, Jonjo Kerr and Essex girl double act 2 Shoes all have the chance to replace Frankie Cocozza, who was kicked off the show on Tuesday. The 18-year old wannabe was booted out of the X Factor after apparently boasting about using drugs, which programme bosses said broke the rules. The four acts that were dropped in the first live show are now vying to re-enter the competition via a charity public vote.  Profits from the telephone vote - amounting to at least 22p per call - will go to Help For Heroes, the charity for wounded armed forces personnel, the show's producers said.

X FACTOR bad boy Frankie Cocozza is making his Blackpool debut at Club Sanuk tomorrow.

The disgraced 18 year-old, pictured, singer was booted off the show after remaining in the headlines for all the wrong reasons.

Despite his fall from grace, Frankie has remained a regular in the nation’s tabloid newspapers, but the controversy surrounding his lifestyle and opinions hasn’t stopped his ever-growing fan base, with close to half a million followers on the popular social networking site, Twitter.

“Frankie is a big name right now and we feel that he is going to be great entertainment value,” said resident DJ Dave Pope. “Love him or hate him I’m sure he’s going to put a great show.”

Cocozza was a wild card on the X Factor – with TV watchdog Ofcom even getting involved in some of his behaviour after he was heard swearing on a live broadcast.

“We know Frankie is a loose cannon and can be unpredictable but that’s what makes it exciting,” said Stuart Green at the North Promenade club. “He has made mistakes and like everyone deserves a second chance. We just can’t wait for tomorrow night to come round so he can show the town what he can do.”

All drinks will be £1.50 all night. Doors 11pm to 4am. As always the club is offering a free guest list for locals. Simply call (01253) 292900 or visit the website at www.clubsanuk.com
