Barlow feels responsible for Frankie's X Factor exit

'X Factor' judge Gary Barlow has admitted that he feels responsible for former contestant hopeful Frankie Cocozza going astray.

The party-loving teenager was booted out of the show this week after apparently boasting about drugs, which programme bosses said broke the rules.

His mentor Mr Barlow said he feels a "level of responsibility" for Mr Cocozza's departure and also blamed fellow panellist Louis Walsh for giving the 18-year-old negative comments on Saturday night.

The four acts who were axed by their own mentors have been given a lifeline to return to the competition.
