Steve Brookstein who won X FACTOR back in 2004 has taken to Twitter to remind people that he once had an album out on the 10th anniversary of the 7/7 bombings.

The former X Factor star, Steve Brookstein, 46, who once wished HIV on openly gay columnist Dan Wootton, has taken to Twitter to say he was “oblivious” to the atrocities of 7/7 in 2005 after celebrating his number 1 album, Heart and Soul.

The tweet to the singer’s 16,000 followers has been retweeted 171 times and has received a Twitter backlash again the self-described “black sheep of the x-factor family.” The seemingly self-obsessed remark caused the singer’s name to trend on the social network.

Woodywizz called Brookstein’s tweet “vacuous”.


In 2005, four suicide bombers rocked the UK’s capital in July 2005, killing 52 in the worst terrorist attacks on the capital. It was the worst act of terrorism in the UK since the bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie.
