On 15 September 2019 he tweeted “The hypocrisy of gay men discussing HIV is astonishing. They don’t like HIV being compared to obesity or smoking. Yes it is unfortunate and treatable but so is obesity and smoking. #GarethThomas”. He was criticised for his lack of empathy towards the former Welsh rugby captain who had been forced to out himself as HIV Undetectable by a tabloid newspaper. His tweet was also deemed homophobic.
In 2013, Brookstein announced that his new album would be called Forgotten Man and would be released on 23 March 2014.
He released a book on 21 November 2014, Getting over the X, that describes his journey from winning The X Factor to having the press and industry turn their backs on him.
Brookstein has been at the centre of several controversies for his opinions on the Twitter social network. In July 2013, he defended child murdereragainst media scrutiny.
In December 2009, when a Facebook campaign was launched to stop The X Factor’s winner from achieving the coveted Christmas number 1 spot, Brookstein backed the campaign to see Rage Against the Machine’s “Killing in the Name” reach the top of the chart, blasting Cowell in an online rant. He further attacked Cowell, claiming the latter “ruined Christmas” and that he was dropped from his record label because he “wouldn’t play the game”. Brookstein also claimed the show was staged and the winner was fixed, and was subsequently removed from the official The X Factor website following those comments. Despite Brookstein’s bitterness towards The X Factor, he signed up to critique the show weekly on London 24 in 2010, where he labelled the judges “ridiculous” and questioned the standards of several of the finalists, including One Direction band member,, and the vocal coach.
In June 2007, Brookstein appeared on the P&O Portsmouth to Bilbao car ferry, alongside The X Factor series 2 alumniand Journey South. In 2008, he played ‘the father’ in a touring production of the award-winning musical Our House.
Brookstein released his debut album Heart and Soul on 9 May 2005 through Sony BMG. Although Brookstein continued to perform tracks from the album on television shows such as CD:UK, a second single failed to materialise. In August 2005 it was announced that Sony BMG had dropped him from their line-up only eight months after his X Factor victory and despite the success of his debut single and album. Brookstein maintains that the decision to drop him reportedly came after he was offered a second album and to come back on the show, which he declined as it was to be another album of covers and he preferred a mix of old and new. In August 2005, eight months after being dropped from his record label, Brookstein publicly attacked The X Factor, claiming the show was “one big theatre… turning music into the WWE” and that it was “killing music”. Brookstein has been vocal in his public feud with Simon Cowell and The X Factor, claiming “there is absolutely no way he would want me within 100 miles of him” and admitting spending years feeling bitter about the way he was treated on the show.
In early 2004, Brookstein auditioned for the first series of The X Factor, a talent series that aimed to discover new recording artists in the UK. His audition failed to impress two of the judges, Sharon Osbourne and Louis Walsh, who thought he lacked the motivation and confidence to succeed but the third, Simon Cowell, asked Brookstein to return the following day and sing again. At the second audition, Brookstein managed to impress the other judges and was put through to the next stage of the competition. He went on to reach the live shows, where contestants are put to the public vote, as one of three contestants in the Over 25s category mentored by Cowell. He reached the grand final on 11 December 2004 alongside G4 and won, despite him mixing up words and lines in his winner’s song and a controversial outburst against him from Osbourne. However, according to Osbourne’s subsequent autobiography, he had gained the most votes in every single one of the live shows. For five years, he held the record for the greatest number of votes ever received in the final – 6 million, but this is now held by series 6 winner, who received over 6.1 million votes.
After winning The X Factor, Brookstein was immediately signed to the Sony BMG record label through which he released his first single, a cover of Phil Collins’ 1984 power ballad “Against All Odds”, on 20 December 2004. The song debuted on the UK Singles Chart at number two and then climbed to number one on 2 January 2005, going one better than Collins’ original and staying there for one week. In Ireland, the song peaked at number 11. The music video for the song was a montage of clips from his time on The X Factor, from his initial audition to his final performance after being declared the winner.
