Brooks Way will no longer be taking part in The X Factor Live Shows.
After being absent from Saturday night’s first Live Show of 2016, Brooks Way and producers of The X Factor have decided by mutual consent that the group will leave the competition.
In a statement, Josh Brooks said: "Due to events in my personal life I've decided that it's best not to be on the show at this time. While not everything that has been claimed is true I would like to apologise to everyone involved."
An X Factor spokesman added: "Following the allegations relating to Josh Brooks, we have decided by mutual consent that Brooks Way should leave the competition."
Details of their replacement will be announced in due course.
