X-Factor contestant Josh Brookes has been disqualified from the popular Channel 7 show after behaving in an “inappropriate manner”.
FremantleMedia Australia released a statement saying the Perth singer would be sent home immediately.
"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 together with Channel Seven made a joint decision to remove him from the competition."
It is believed Josh and eliminated contestant Adil Memon asked fans to post naked pictures of themselves during a weekend webcam screening on Twitter.
A replacement for Brookes will be announced soon.
