After leaving the competition during the very first episode, Joe Black's elimination sparked debate all over social media, even resulting in Tracy Beaker herself commenting on the judges' wrongdoings. In a recent interview with Gay Times, Black said that "Going out first is always an iconic placement. For people to say, 'This is the most wrong first elimination' is amazing. It's been incredible, all the support online."
In terms of the diversity of this year's show, she added "The fact that I got onto that show, being a little out of the box from what the show would normally have — I'm including Ginny Lemon in this as well — is amazing; that I got on there while not necessarily pertaining to the traditional elements of what the show is."
Joe Black was given the gift of opportunity, and was one of three queens brought back for episode 5, following the departure of Ginny Lemon and Veronica Green. Sadly, Black failed to win the judge's hearts and ended up eliminated once again.
