Simon Cowell says Cocozza has "blown a wonderful opportunity"

Simon Cowell has spoken out about Frankie Cocozza's decision to quit The X Factor

The 18-year-old singer confirmed yesterday, November 8, that he has walked away from his place in the final after breaking some of the contest's rules and now music mogul Cowell has said he has "no one to blame but himself" for the wasted opportunity. 

Althought it's still unclear which rules were broken by Cocozza, Cowell told The Sun newspaper that "Frankie's blown a wonderful opportunity. It's very sad, but he has no one to blame but himself."

X Factor bosses will make an announcement later today about what will happen on Saturday's show and you can watch the moment that Kelly Rowland found out about Cocozza's shock exit here:
