This is awful news and goes way beyond the realms of some silly TV show. Josh has obviously left the house to be with his family.
No details on how the tragedy occurred have been released on the Big Brother web site and they have suspended live updates. But it is believed that Toby suffered a suspected heart attack.
It is hard to see how the show could recover from this disaster. Josh was one of the lead characters in the house and probably one of the favourites to win the game. But playing silly games seems totally pointless in view of this real life family heartbreak.
I would imagine all games have been suspended in the house and his friends in there will be suffering too, on his behalf.
There is really no more to report until the producers decide how or if they are going to proceed. Our sympathies go out to Josh and his family and friends.
