Gary Barlow says Frankie Cocozza is "in a good place" after leaving The X Factor
The Take That hitmaker was acting as the young singer's mentor on the show and was shocked when he left the contest on Tuesday, November 8.
Speaking to Olly Murs and Caroline Flack on The Xtra Factor last night, Barlow explained that he's sympathetic towards him but thinks he is dealing with the situation well:
"As a show and a mentor, we've all felt responsible for him this week. It was his choice to leave the competition. We all stood by him."
Watch Barlow talk about Cocozza's departure during The X Factor's recent press conference, and an Xtra Factor exclusive interview with Cocozza which premiered yesterday (November 12):
