Frankie backers get second chance at William Hill
William Hill are refunding all bets placed on Frankie Cocozza in their Outright Markets (Top Male, X Factor winner) and have also refunded all bets placed on Frankie to be the 10th person evicted.
"In a way, Frankie backers have been handed a lifeline, because his performance on last week's show would have surely been the final nail in the coffin of his chances of winning the show," said Hill's spokesman Joe Crilly.
Frankie Cocozza was sensationally booted off the X-Factor on Tuesday and William Hill make him 16/1 to get a number one single by the end of next year. Frankie's name has become synonymous with Geordie Shore since his misjudged comments on The X-Tra Factor a few weeks ago and Hills are offering 20/1 that he becomes a regular on the cutting edge, North-East based show.
"Frankie has had a fair old crack at the whip but ultimately his penchant for partying has put paid to his X-Factor dreams," said Hill's spokesman Joe Crilly. "We think he may now run off, tail between his legs to the more accommodating environs of the Geordie Shore."
Kitty Brucknell is the Even money favourite to get the boot this weekend with Little Mix 4/1 while after his version of Reet Petit at the weekend, Marcus Collins is the 5/2 favourite to win the show.
