‘X-Factor Australia’ hopeful Josh Brookes has been booted off the show after acting in an “inappropriate manner” on a social media.
According to an official statement released by the show’s bosses, the Perth singer has been sent home “immediately.”
"The X Factor contestant, Josh Brookes, has been disqualified from the program, effective immediately,” the statement read.
“During an out of hours social media session Josh behaved in an inappropriate manner that put him in breach of his responsibilities to the program.”
“After a careful review of the incident, FremantleMedia Australia, producers of the program, together with Channel Seven made a joint decision to remove him from the competition.”
This is the second year that the 20-year-old has auditioned for the hit show. Josh made it to the Boot Camp stage last year, before being left out of Guy Sebastian’s group of under-25 male performers.
Josh’s shock disqualification leaves judge Mel B with just one contender, Dubbo singer Jason Owen, but a replacement will be announced soon.
“An announcement on the new contestant will be made in the coming days," the statement continued.
