A contestant on an Australian talent show has been booted out, allegedly for asking his Twitter followers to upload nude photos.
Australian television network Seven announced today that X Factor contestant Josh Brookes has been disqualified from the programme.
"During an out of hours social media session Josh behaved in an inappropriate manner that put him in breach of his responsibilities to the programme," Seven has announced in a short statement.
Other media reports suggest Josh attempted to implore nude photos from his 24,000 Twitter followers during a Twitcam chat this week.
"After a careful review of the incident, FremantleMedia Australia, producers of the programme, together with Channel Seven made a joint decision to remove him from the competition. Josh will return home to Perth."
Seven says a new contestant will be announced soon.
