Disagreeing with Rose and husband Rob’s ensuite design, Luke had attempted to talk to the mum-of-three and persuade her to rethink the risky move, but was quickly shot down.
When he later vented his frustration to Michelle, calling the doorless design ‘horrendous’, Rose overheard - and she didn’t hold back in calling Luke out on being two-faced. Pot calling the kettle black, anyone??
With Rose in tears, Luke did the gentlemanly thing and apologised for not being honest with her in the first place, though he stood by his appraisal of the room.
But far from taking crying Rose’s side, fans jumped to Luke’s defence on social media, criticising Rose and Rob for dishing it out but not being able to take it.
‘Rose and Rob love dishing out the criticism, the moment someone else vents a little frustration, Rose gets her nose out of joint,’ Dennis Stevenson wrote on the show’s official Facebook page. ‘Luke is still a top lad, he just had a boil over of emotions after dealing with the worlds s***est human (sic).’
Diane Mitchell agreed: ‘I can’t believe Rose took a comment about the room so personally. Luke never attacked her… They can say and do whatever they want, but the minute someone else has a negative opinion about something, Rose loses it… She had no right to make Luke feel bad.’
