Amelia likes Frankie but she doesn't see him as boyfriend material

Amelia Lily came third on The X Factor in December after taking the place of disgraced Frankie Cocozza.

The pair were rumoured to have been an item but Amelia, 17, insists they never even kissed.

‘Nothing went on between us,’ she tells Now’s Dan Wootton. ‘Who would date someone who’s slept with that many people?

‘I wouldn’t! I’ve got far too much respect for myself to do that.

‘Besides, I’d just got out of a relationship. The last thing I wanted was to go into another one.’

Frankie and Amelia did become mates, though.

‘You’ve got to bear in mind that I lived with the guy for five weeks in a house,’ she explains.

‘Everyone grows attached to different people in that situation.

‘It just so happens that me and Frankie became practically best friends.

‘He saw me walking around with my pyjamas on and no make-up with my hair in a bun.

‘I’d never let a boyfriend see me like that.

‘I was very proud of him on Celebrity Big Brother.

‘He showed everyone who he actually is.’
