It is believed that during a Twitcam chat with eliminated contestant Adil Memon, twenty year old Perth hopeful Brookes asked fans to “send us banana pics” which refers to nude images.
Channel 7 released a statement:
“During an out of hours social media session Josh behaved in an inappropriate manner that put him in breach of his responsibilities to this 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. Josh will return home to Perth.
‘An announcement on the new contestant will be made in the coming days’ after Brookes’ departure has resulted in X Factor mentor Mel B having only one contestant on her team, Dubbo’s Jason Owen.’
