X FACTOR contestant Josh Brookes has been sacked from the reality show for breaching social media rules, while former finalist Adil Memon has deactivated his Twitter account.

The Seven Network released a statement saying Brookes, one of the 11 remaining contestants who was being put up in an apartment in Sydney, was being sent home to Perth as he "behaved in an inappropriate manner".

Media reports suggest Brookes had tried to solicit nude photos from some of his 24,000 followers during an unauthorised Twitcam chat this week.

He was apparently using Twitcam with Memon who was had been eliminated from X Factor on Tuesday night.

Memon has since deactivated his Twitter account while Brookes' last posting was some 20 hours ago.
