"It’s been a bit of a disaster. I live by myself in Melbourne. I’ve been married for 25 years and I get looked after by my wife Ann - then I’m there [in Melbourne filming] for three months."
"When I get back to Sydney, I get back into regular fitness and some healthy food. Ann looks after me."
Scotty has confirmed the new series will be nothing like last year.
He told News.com.au, "We learned that [renovating the Oslo Hotel in Melbourne] was too big, and we won't be doing it this big again, I can guarantee it."
"We always try and go bigger and better, but we probably crossed the line," he said.
"It's achievable because it all got done and sold really well. But I think just for the crew and everybody in [the] future, it will still be a big construction and still be big, but it just won't be as big as this."
