Last night in the Big Brother House, Housemate Josh was called to the
Captain's Quarters as the Housemates were getting ready for bed.
Josh was taken out of the House to meet his parents who had to tell him the tragic news of the sudden death of his brother Toby, 32.
Josh then spent the night outside the House with his family where he made
the decision to leave the Big Brother competition and go home to support his
family at this sad time.
The Southern Star production team and the Nine Network wish to express their sympathy to the family and ask the fans of Big Brother and the media to
allow them privacy at this time.
Further announcements about the Big Brother shows will come later today.
