The Block Australia’s Scott Cam has hit back in the wake of the show’s fiery cheating scandal. And the presenter did not mince his words.

Speaking with NOVA’s Fitzy & Wippa on Wednesday, Scott, 58, was clearly irate about the cheating saga, deeming it “un-Australian”.

“To have someone cheat and get an advantage, to me, it’s un-Australian, it’s just no good. I’d like it to be 1965… we could go old-school on them,” the carpenter said.

Fitzy & Wippa then pulled up a clip of the cheaters in question, Josh and Luke Packham, where they said that Scotty had “gone easy on some people” who they claimed were also involved in the scandal, and used it to their advantage.

Scotty, however, was not having it.

“For them to say that, that sh*ts me up the wall,” the 58-year-old told the radio hosts.

“I’m scrambling to save my show because of what they have done. They knew all along what the schedule was… the ball is in their court, certainly not mine. Those boys are absolutely kidding themselves, fair dinkum.”

Josh and Luke became embroiled in the cheating scandal when they took photos of the show’s production schedule, which gave them the advantage of knowing which room they would have to renovate next.

While the reality stars claimed that they weren’t the only competitors who used the schedule to their advantage, other contestants have hit back at these accusations.

This morning, The Block’s Ronnie and Georgia took to their Instagram stories to weigh in on the fiasco.

“TO CLARIFY – Yes, we saw the photo of the production board in Week One for about 3 seconds & informed producers what had just happened literally 5 minutes later,” the stars wrote.

They continued: “We weren’t keen to call it out on camera because we honestly wanted to avoid the drama this season.”

Ahh yes, so glad drama was avoided.

“Cut to 3 weeks later… we’re highly irritated with the Master Bedroom scores, knowing that teams were effectively cheating and winning – that’s when the Rondog volcano erupted and the photo scandal was shared on camera.”

Who knew The Block would end up being as dramatic as Married At First Sight? Albeit, this time it’s a different kind of cheating scandal.
