Big Brother Australia Contestant Josh Moore Leaves Show After Brother's Sudden Death

Josh Moore Withdraws From Big Brother After Family Tragedy

Big Brother contestant Josh Moore has left the show following news of his brother’s sudden death. The 28-year-old surfer and musician from Adelaide, who is well-liked by his Housemates, has never been up for nomination and was a favourite to win the competition, was told of the shocking news yesterday. His parents came to the house’s Captain’s Quarters to tell Josh of his 32-year-old brother Toby’s passing — a suspected heart attack — and Josh spent the night with them before making the decision to leave the show. Toby was Josh’s only sibling. A Channel Nine spokeswoman said, “The Southern Star production team and the Nine Network wish to express their sympathy to the family and ask fans of Big Brother and the media to allow them privacy at this time.” Our thoughts are with Josh and his family.
