Well, there we have it; the question on everybody’s lips has been answered with Rylan Clark-Neal confirming that removed X Factor act, Brooks Way, will be replaced with another band.
The group, made up of 17-year-old twins Josh and Kyle Brooks, made it through to the live finals but were suspended from the show before they could perform on Saturday night after allegations of Josh beating his ex-girlfriend “black and blue” and “breaking her nose” came to light.
It was since reported that the boys had been permanently removed from the singing competition, with the twins being told that they are “no longer welcome” in the studio.
Speaking on This Morning, Rylan – who hosts X Factor’s spin-off show ‘The Xtra Factor’ – explained: “It has just been announced they won’t be coming back but I can confirm they will be replaced.
“I can’t say who, but I think I know who it is.
“It’s really sad about the boys, there was a story that broke at the weekend, the boys are gutted.
“We wish them well but the show will go on and we will be replacing them.”
Fans of the show were left fuming during Judges’ Houses when Groups mentor, Louis Walsh, didn’t put popular girl group ‘4 Of Diamonds’ through to the lives, so here’s hoping that they’re able to make an almighty return to the stage next week.
Meanwhile, Josh has denied all of the harrowing allegations that Amelia Clark has made against him, writing on Twitter last night: “Today, we have had a tough day with a false allegation.
“Don’t believe everything you read, both Amelia and Josh will be stating the truth. The truth always wins.”
They have not yet commented on their removal from the competition.
