X FACTOR bad boy Frankie Cocozza is set to appear live in Bolton.

Cocozza will be appearing at The Bar, in Nelson’s Square, on March 9, before going on to make a further guest appearance at J2 alongside some mystery pals from the Big Brother house.

General manager Matt Taylor said he was expecting the event to be a sell out.

Admission is to over 18s only. Tickets cost £5, and are available via j2bolton.com, or by ringing Matt on 01204 392 391.

Cocozza hit the headlines when he auditioned for the X Factor and claimed to have slept with scores of women, despite being just 19.

He was kicked off the show for bad behaviour, including drink and drug abuse.

However he went on to be voted runner up of Celebrity Big Brother.
