Jonjo Kerr protects Frankie Cocozza from getting into more trouble

Frankie Cocozza lived up to his rebellious reputation at The X Factor wrap party on Tuesday night after getting into an argument outside Dstrkt nightclub in London’s Soho.

The 18-year-old, who’s reported to have gate-crashed the bash, had to be lead away from the spat – and waiting paparazzi – by fellow former contestant Jonjo Kerr after leaving the venue at 4am.

‘Shut up, shut up,’ Jonjo, 27, told Frankie.

Former soldier Jonjo – who was snapped with a protective hand around the Brighton teenager’s head – insists Frankie was upset by the ‘cruel’ things being said to him by party-goers.

‘Keep your chin up mate, you did nothing wrong! I love you Frank, ignore them xxxxx,’ Tweets Jonjo.

Frankie was dropped from The X Factor after admitting taking cocaine.
