The singer, who celebrated his 20th birthday yesterday, will perform at The Buttermarket on Friday, 22 March, and tickets went on sale today.

Cocozza caused a series of controversies on the X Factor after revealing that the names of some of his many lovers were tattooed on his bottom.

He eventually got booted off the show when his behaviour overstepped the mark and he broke competition rules

He went on to be last year’s runner-up in Celebrity Big Brother

The vocalist, who boasts over one million twitter followers, played to a sell-out gig in London in December before announcing his national tour.

Martin Monahan, owner of The Buttermarket , said: “Frankie is a loveable cheeky-chappy, and certainly came across as a really genuine guy in last year’s Celebrity Big Brother, where he came second to Denise Welch.

“He’s obviously serious about his music and released his first EP in November.

“We’re delighted to have been included as one of his national tour dates, and it’s really exciting how many large promoters are now approaching us with some amazing bands, especially after them seeing the two sell-out James Arthur gigs recently.

“We’re certainly going to be putting Shropshire back on the map with some great live music.”

Tickets for Frankie’s Shrewsbury concert went on sale at 9am today at www.thebuttermarket.co.uk

Had to look under the barrel, not scrape the bottom of it for this looser! Not so much of a 'has been', more of a 'never was'. Don't rush for tickets folks, I'm sure there'll be plenty left.

Not sure there'll be that many left, sadly. There used to be style and musical alternatives to the popular rubbish of the day but it seems that's all gone by the way. You can tell theres something silly going on when a small to medium market town venue starts calling itself an 'Arena' anyway. I think it's quite apparent the Buttermarket has set it's course and is in grave danger of sailing up it's own VIP lounge. I hoped for diversity. I'm not going to get it.
