Big Brother contestant Josh Moore revealed last night that he is feeling "numb" after the death of his only brother Toby.
In an interview backstage Josh admitted he’s trying to get back into reality after the tragic death, and has a positive outlook for the future.
He revealed "I’ve got good family and friends, I've got good support, so everyone has been around and it's been amazing… (we’re) dealing with it only as we can… we’re getting through it"
“It’s such a surreal experience,” he said. “Obviously coming out of house at best of times would be tough thing to deal with, coming back to reality, and then to have that heaped on me as well, the loss of my brother, it has taken a couple of days to let everything sink in."
“I’ve felt like I'm still floating around in this bubble and at some point it’s going to burst and everything will hit me a bit more."

Josh was the only housemate not nominated for eviction this week, and said the decision to leave the house last week was a ‘no-brainer.’
We wish Josh and his family all the best through this difficult time.
Josh also spoke about his relationship with Ava, revealing: "The first time I saw Ava… she’s sitting in the spa. I didn’t know what to think…. When I saw her I knew I was in trouble….I’ve spoken to her every day since I’ve left and she’s been a great support for me. I think at some point we’ll meet up."
