Ahead of the season nineteen premiere ofThe Block on Sunday, August 6th, the rumour mill has been swirling that longtime host Scott Cam will be departing the popular renovation program after 13 years at the helm.
Various media outlets have claimed that the 60-year-old Gold Logie winner had reached the end of his contract, and would not be signing a new one to host future seasons of The Block.

Speaking with Yahoo Lifestyle, an "insider" revealed that producers of the ratings hit were "scrambling" to find someone who would be able to fill Scotty's shoes.
"Scott Cam's contract is up and it is believed he isn't signing any more after this one," they suggested.
"We want to celebrate while we have Scotty on contract and that may very well mean getting our skates on now."
But just days later, Channel Nine was forced to rebuke the claims made by the supposed "insider", telling news.com.au that any reports of Scotty leaving The Block after season nineteen were "not true."
Scotty himself confirmed to 9Entertainment that he wasn't planning on leaving his "beloved" Channel Nine anytime soon.
"Unfortunately for those who might want to see the back of me, a couple of months ago I signed a long-term deal. We're ready to go!"
"I know I'm old, [but] we're gonna keep going!"
Fans can rest assured that Scotty isn't leaving The Block anytime soon.
Scotty has hosted The Block since season three of the show in 2010, where he took over hosting duties from Jamie Durie.
Shelley Craft also joined Scotty at the helm that same year, and the rest is history.
Whilst Scotty has not yet commented on the rumours himself, he has recently expressed his excitement at being able to work on The Block, and how "thrilled" he was to be kicking off a new season.
