Gareth Cliff believes his dismissal as a judge on Idols SA was "quite peculiar" considering how other judges have been dealt with in the past when they were involved in similar situations.

Cliff submitted an urgent application to the High Court in Johannesburg, asking to be reinstated as an Idols judge on M-Net after he was dismissed following a response to a racist tweet by Penny Sparrow.

Cliff is suing M-Net for R25m, of which R5m is for defamation of character.
