Dan Wootton interviews TV's resident bad boys

When Kirk Norcross, 23, and Frankie Cocozza, 19, walk into the studio for our Blues Brothers-themed shoot, it looks like our style team will have their work cut out.

Frankie, who dragged himself out of bed at 11.30am, looks a bit of mess – chubbier than during his time on The X Factor, with bad skin and an even worse smell.

Frankie, you don’t look great. Are your famly worried?

F: Obviously. But they’ve said it before – all that shit of: Stop going out and getting pissed.’

Have you thought about giving up the booze?

F: Nah. But I think I should. It’s not healthy at all. I hit it hard.

K: He’ll be sick after two glasses sometimes.

F: I’m always sick when I’m pissed.

Is it hard not to take drugs when you’re out in all these clubs?

Everyone’s done drugs. I put my hands up and say I have. But you can’t
do it that much in this job. If you get caught, it’s over.

F: I know how much of a big deal it is [he was caught doing coke while he was a contestant on The X Factor].

I don’t need to mix about with that shit because I’m having such a good time anyway. Not a chance I’ll take them.
